So I ditched Plan A and let myself dream a little... and thought "February... what's special about it?" Um... marmalade-making and Valentine's Day? So... bright orange "Flaming Desire" socks it is!
Now I remember why I love Hazel Knits Artisan Sock yarn! What a pleasure it is to knit with: soft, yet firm, with amazing stitch definition. And look how kick-off-your-shoes wild this Hi Octang colour is!
And yes - it is another Anne Hanson pattern, because I reckon I might be able to learn a thing or two from the way she writes a sock!
Drab and grey or fizzily orange? No contest!
