What fun to knit! I knit these with Fleece Artist Nova Sock (colorway "Jester"). Now I can't wait to start "La Digitessa"....

I failed knitting thoses socks

Such a long time ago I started to knit the great Firestarters socks for myself, very stylish pattern, however, I encountered some big difficulties while starting the reversed heel, after a lots of frogging and reknitting, I accepted that I failed to knit thoses so cute socks, the reverse construction and the cables are quite a big challenge for me and in general, (hum in fact all the time) I prefer top down construction, and cables are not my best friends. Finally, I only managed to knit a single baby sock, with the confortable top down construction.

I'm impressed by all of you, for being able of knitting them, in adult size, following the reverse construction.

Bon tricot à toutes et tous.

KAL newbie

hi everyone! so glad i found this kal. i am totally and completely enamored of yarnissima's firestarter socks. and i had just the right KPPPM for it!

since taking this, i've finished sock #1 and am working up the foot of sock #2.
my mods:
used magic cast-on (instead of crochet cast-on)
no twisting / cabling on the foot - just plain ribbing
i think i'm doing garter stitch in the gusset, not reverse stockinette (what's it
supposed to be???)
shortened the leg a little; no increases at the top of the leg ribbing

can't wait to see everyone's beautiful finished socks!
