I have been working really hard getting these socks done, and finally, last night, I grafted the toes on each sock, wove in the ends, and stopped to admire them.
These are the first socks I’ve ever knit on sock yarn. It’s been a challenge, but I’m pleased with the results. I know I will knit more, as evidenced by my sock yarn stash.
I knit these on bamboo needles, which got warped during the process, but as we say in Hawai‘i, “Ainokea!” [I don’t care.] They are old friends now, and I will keep using them.
Walking through the fire. We all have our tough times, and these socks speak to me of walking through but eventually coming out on the other side. We don’t stop in the middle.
“Walking Through the Fire” socks. Lorna’s Laces “Flames” colorway. Knit on Size 1 needles. Blocked on

I think they look great with tomatoes and marigolds.
It’ll be harder to photograph finished objects during the gray of winter!
