The Kindling Socks are my answer to the fingering weight High Desert Sock (my most beloved sock pattern of all time). Like kindling to a fire, I wanted these to be the perfect intro to sock knitting to spark any adventurous beginners love of sock knitting.

Thank you so much for your support of Kindling. Please use the tag #kindlingsocks to share with me on instagram! Seeing your yarn choices and watching your progress is the greatest joy. Happy knitting!
