flaming desire

a real drama queen of a sock to to treat yourself to, once the christmas knitting is done. worked in a scrumptious merino/cashmere blend, it’s the sinfully rich dessert of knitting—something for you alone.

shown here: size large in zen yarn garden serenity sock, colorway into the fire. click here to pre-order a sock kit or yarn alone (to be shipped early in january) from zen yarn garden.

my collaborator, roxanne, at zen yarn garden, created this very special colorway to make this design come to life for the december yarn4socks elements club kit.

my very good friend gail once again pitched in to test knit this pattern (shown in her nov 19 post)—thank you; i appreciate you so much, gail!

    I am SO glad this pattern is already available. Have to admit I’ve been slightly obsessed with it, after I couldn’t get in on the sock club 😀 Thanks, Anne!

    How many ways are there to say “gorgeous”? Not enough for this sock and yarn combination!

    The photos make me so glad I managed to snag one of the kits from yarn4socks.com. It’s patiently waiting for me to finish the current sock and get cracking. Those photos are just the inspiration I need. It’s absolutely glorious.

    Thank you for sharing and for making it available for everyone else.

    I just ordered some reward sock yarn (finishing 5 christmas gifts deserves a reward, right?) and I think i’ll just have to get this pattern when it arrives! gorgeous sock!

    Like the others I was smitten by this pattern and hoped to be able to purchase it when I couldn’t get into the sock club, so thanks! It is purchased and I am happily contemplating my orange and crimson sock yarns to find the best one.

    beautiful, this will be my Christmas project (in the middle of summer :-)). Is the pattern easy to convert to toe up?

  13. Ann says:

    A stunning design & the color really reflects the design.

  14. Krystal says:

    The sock pattern is beautiful. You and I have a pattern going: I decide what I am going to knit next, and then you post a new pattern and I have to refigure what I am knitting next:-)

  15. Teresa says:

    As you promised, here is the fabulous sock pattern. I’ve pre-ordered the yarn, but I might just have to make a pair from my stash yarn…do you believe I have quite a stash?

  16. Marilyn says:

    This is one of the funnest patterns I’ve ever knitted. I’m loving the colorway for sure!

  17. Neuroknitter says:

    It was with great pleasure and delight, as always, Anne!! xo

    Love the sock! Ilove your socks but am not a fan of the short row heel like in Luxor.How hard would it be to convert those patterns to this style heel?

  19. Knitnana says:

    Wow! Lovely, and I know how wonderful Roxanne’s yarns are…what a great combo!

    Ordered this club shipment and I love love it! The yarn truly is the colors of flames and the pattern is just beautiful! I am so looking forward to knitting these up once the craziness of the holidays is over. These will certainly keep me warm this winter.

  22. Linda says:

    Pretty socks! I love the crochet in your previous post. I have a doilly pattern book that I often think about using!

    Love these socks! Shall I do these first or Hayrick?

    Dovecoat question…which size are you wearing in the photos?
