More Socks!

Ta Da! I'm finished with another pair of socks. These are Embossed Leaves Socks from the Interweave "Favorite Socks" book.
I just can't accurately capture the colorway. I wish you could see it because it's such a beautiful color. I didn't even realize all the colors in the yarn until I was outside knitting in natural light. I found the yarn in my stash. It's Cherry Tree Hill, Pot Luck Blues/Greens. I couldn't believe I paid $22 for it - and that was a couple of years ago! What was I thinking? I guess I was thinking I had a whole lot more money than I actually did! Oh well, it has been used and I think it looks great in this pattern.

The heel is new to me. I like the way it's garter stitched on each side. The toe is a star toe. I don't mind the kitchener stitch at all, but this was a nice change. Oh, I also did a different cuff than the pattern called for. I think it's okay. What about you?

Very nice. At $22 a pop, I think you better learn to walk on your hands (remember to wear panties)
