Le Sacre du Printemps (Firestarters - FO)

Le Sacre du Printemps (Firestarters - FO), [366:13, 05.02.2008]
Originally uploaded by elemmaciltur

Start: 03rd October 2007
Finish: 04th February 2008
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Sockenwolle, colourway "Bob"
Needle: 2.5 mm / 80 cm Addi Turbos
Pattern: Firestarter by Yarnissima via The Loopy Ewe
Modifications: I needed to modify the stitches to make it fit my foot. 72 stitches instead of the 60 stitches from the pattern and one extra cable repeat before the gusset increase as well as extra cable repeats on the leg. I also used the Judy Magic Cast-On instead of the provisional CO as well as EZ's sewn bind-off instead of doubling the yarn and do a normal bind-off.

Woohoo! Finally, it's finished!!!! This is the best fitting pair of socks I've made up to date. It's pretty snug.....and not to even mention the brightness of it all!

Oooohh. I like the EZ bind-off idea. Those look great. It really is a nice pattern.. (must start second sock...)

These are gorgeous. I like the EZ bind off idea, too. I've definitely have to try that one of these days.
