Wildfire Socks

Wildfire socks
women's size 10
Christy, a member of the Fiber Guild, is a sales rep for several yarn companies, and each year she gives her samples away to interested Guild members. It is fairly common to leave her house with more than one bag of yummy yarn. I love being able to knit with brands that cannot be found locally.

Last year, Christy had three sock flats (panels) that caught my eye, one a bright red. This summer the news was once more filled images of wildfires, and the smoky skies created vivid, red sunsets: thus, I named this yarn and the socks I knit, Wildfire.

Yarn: Regia - Creativ (sock blank)

Needles : turbo Sock Rockets, 16 inch circulars, US 2

Pattern: plain vanilla socks with ribbed cuff

Unfamiliar with sock blanks (yarn panels)? I've posted about one several years ago.

  1. The color is gorgeous! I like the way it gradually shifts from dark on the cuff, light on the foot, and back to dark on the toe.

  4. I've never knit from a sock blank but have been tempted to buy one many times. Do you wind the yarn into a ball or do you knit right off of the blank? The color is wonderful!
