Change Direction

So I was somewhat happily knitting along on the pattern that came with the Socks That Rock, but wasn’t really loving it when I came across this lovely free pattern called Marigold by Flint Knits. Suddenly it struck me that this would be a lovely pattern for Firebird. I tenatively cast on and look – it does work!!! Yeah!!! Much happier now, but I’m feeling I must get back to my poor sweater. I have more crafting to do than I have time. (lol)

  • Hey, I changed patterns for Firebird too and almost chose marigold too! Instead I went with the “Crosshatch” stitch from more Sensational Knitted socks. I too know feel much better πŸ™‚ Isn’t the color swell though?

  • I’m with you. I decided to go march to the tune of a different drummer with STR firebird too. And man am I a happy chickie now! In fact I almost selected marigold too, but ended up with the crosshatch pattern (p.90) from More Sensational Knitted Socks. Still toe up and coming into the home stretch for sock # 1

      The pattern is showing off the yarn very well! I think we all have more crafting than we have time.
