I finished the Flame Wave pattern socks using stretchy Cascade Fixation cotton and elastic yarn in color 5104. The socks are very comfortable and stretch nicely to fit the leg without binding at the top. I made these for my mother who has diabetes. She can't wear socks that are tight, so this pattern and yarn is perfect. This is the first time I knitted socks using a lacy pattern. It takes longer, but the results are worth it.

That is beautiful! I was wondering about this pattern b/c it calls for elastic yarn. Yours turned out great.

Thank you so much for posting a picture of the finished object, I'm really looking forward to this pattern and haven't seen a lot of versions of it (yet). Great job, they're gorgeous and love the color! I bought Elann's Esprit for the pair I plan on knitting.

I was really looking forward to see some finished pictures of this sock! Your's looks awesome! I'm glad you commented on the fit and yarn you used; I'm going to add these to my to-do list.
