Preview #2!

Greta Garbo motif outlined to show the nupp shapes

Just to whet the appetites a bit more I bring a preview of the second sock pattern inspired by Estonian shawls.  This is "Aflame," which features twisted ribbing which ends in a "V" shape on the instep for a perfect fit through the ankle, a Greta Garbo motif (four hearts made of nupps, Estonian "button" bobbles) with optional outlining for darker or deeper colors, and a lace heart on the instep.  The socks begin with a tubular cast on (instructions will be included) and have a Dutch heel.
