Sock #1 finished!

I just finished this morning my first Firestarter. The pattern was fun and was easy once I understood what I was doing. It was really cool to learn a new type of toe-up heel as I always do short-row heels nowadays.

I was concerned that the sock was going to be too long as my feet are 21cm and not 24cm but due to my different row gauge it worked out perfectly and the sock fits perfectly well.

Awesome! Is definately the right word.

I was going to say awesome, but instead I will toss in a little variety and say "Gee, your sock looks terrific!"

Great color too. What yarn/colorway did you use?

Wow - and I knit on a sock for my big gurl - which now needs frogging. I think I can be rewarded tonight with some me sock knitting.
