I finally finished knitting my Firestarter socks and I'm finally happy with them after some wee adjustments.
Pattern: Firestarter by Yarnissima
Pattern available as a free Ravelry download here.
Yarn: Wollmeise Sockenwolle 100% superwash in Campari Orange
Mods: After knitting one sock, I ripped it out because I wasn't happy with the way the Wollmeise knit up at 8 stitches to the inch. Instead, I knit them at 10 stitches to the inch and used Judy Becker’s magic cast on starting with 28sts (14 per needle) and increased the stitch count to 72sts using a 2.25mm needle. I then worked 6 pattern repeats for the foot, and changed the rest as follows.
Gusset: Same as pattern.
Heel turn: 10 live w/ 9 wrapped.
Heel flap: Same as pattern.
Leg: same over 72 stitches.
I lucked out, but I don't care. I have some hot feet today, baby!
