Some of you may be thinking “Its about time.”
For “Flameco! Socks”, its true. The saga of what is actually the first in the Dance Socks has been long and tumultuous.
Flamenco! was designed as a sock club exclusive, to be kitted up for members only. As sometimes happens with smaller Indie Dyers though – there have been a few well known debacles on Ravelry – the dyer got in over her head and the brand, website and club were abandoned.
There was some hope initially that things would recover but promises made never came true and it left the couple of designers with a bit of a bad taste. I shelved the pattern, even though the second in series, Bellydance! Sock had been released to the general public.
I’m happy to say that Flamenco! is, at long last available for purchase.
I hope you’ll like it. This is a top down style and all the Dance Series feature similar construction details, interesting patterns or cast ons that are somewhat unique. This looks best in a smooth surface yarn, one that won’t compete with the stitch pattern used. The sample was knit in a merino / tencel blend but a merino / silk, merino / bamboo would all work equally well.
