Flame Socks

These are pics of the unfinished, unblocked single sock in the "Flame Wave Socks" from Favorite Socks by Interweave.

I wanted to make a sample pair of socks for the store with the new Patons Stretch Socks that I just got in stock. I am using the olive colorway for this pair. I have discovered that you should not bother using a subtle pattern stitch with this yarn. It doesn't show up at all. I have done a close up of the pattern....I hope you can see it. I wanted to make this pattern and didn't really give the color a whole lot of thought..I should have.

The yarn itself is great. It's got great drape. It's super soft and nicely stretchy.

I am, however, suffering deeply from 'second sock syndrome'.....I don't wanna make the other one. This is my first time with SSS...EVER! Keep me in your sock prayers...
