Final Three Socks!

If you remember Rosie’s Firestarters, they  had a flame motif going up the side.

The Nightswimming socks have that same motif, running up the left in this pic–

May these socks keep you feisty, but surrounded by calm.

These were designed by me which means they have the fitted arch and Welsh heel… But Meg likes them, too.

Pattern Notes 
Pay close attention to gauge – the pattern stitch tends to tighten the fabric and limit its stretchiness. Tight knitters may want to go up a size or adjust needles, yarn or both to customize fit.

I also knit this in worsted with the fewest number of stitches in the pattern and got a very comfy bed sock. The flame motif is even more apparent on this one.
