Embossed Leaves



Specs:

Pattern: Embossed Leaves from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Potluck Water
Needles: 2 US dpn's and 2 US addi Turbo Lace for Magic Loop
Size: 9..5
Started: June 21, 2008 Finished: July 4, 2008

No mods except I knitted my pointy toe. The shape of my toes isn't suitable for round toe socks.


This is the back of the machine knit sweater I'm working. I made an error on the front and then made it worse so I'll have to start that piece over.

I've cast on sock #2 for sos08. They are a pair of plain socks for the moment in Online Supersock Fun Color. These will be for mom as I decide which pattern to use for the next pair. My biggest dilemma is deciding whether or not I'm going to knit any thing to enter into the state fair. I want to in a way, but I'm not sure if I want to devote my knitting time to the projects. I'll have to make a decision one way or the other.

In the meantime, I'm enjoying the usual afternoon thunderstorm. I love the sound of rain falling.

The socks are gorgeous - what a great colorway - and the sweater looks lovely, too!

doesn't look so pointy to me. Looks great. I might have to try Embossed Leaves. I wanted to do the shawl with this pattern. Nice pattern on the sweater also.

Great socks. I love that pattern and green is just the right color for them.

Socks lovely. Machine knit also really really pretty. I LOVE storms. I am always sad if I am working during a storm in the summer time!
