I must be delusional to cast on yet another pair of socks just a few days before Ravelry Sockdown starts. But these are knitting up amazingly fast so I think I just might make it.

The pattern is Flame Wave Socks by Ann Budd from the book Favorite Socks. The yarn is one of from Apleks in Estonia. It’s supposed to be superwash merino but it feels coarse and, umm, shall we say rustic. It’s somewhat splitty because it’s very loosely plied 2-ply and it knits up quite unevenly.
