Firecrackers



US1.5 Unknown yarn with 3 repeat of the lace pattern. I cast on too tight so I ended up having to knit these for my mom. I never had this problem before but I guess its because I'm been knitting toe up for the past 2 months. I was really looking forward to keeping these socks. The heel flap is a s1 k1 and I continued this pattern through the heel. I like the thicker heel since this is where I wear out my socks the quickest.
Its the perfect road trip project. I was apprehensive about the 12 round repeat for our road trip but it wasn't bad at all.

Thank you Tama for another great pattern. Looking forward to August.
