Woohoo, I finished my Embossed Leaves socks! I am very pleased with the results.
I did these toe up and I did the chart as written, so my leaves are going in the opposite direction. I tried flipping the chart but the yarn overs didn't seem to line up correctly and it was just a big yarny mess, so I frogged and re-knit them with the chart as written. And I am very pleased that I did, I am really happy with the results.
I used Panda Wool for these and I am very happy that I did. The shine on these is amazing, it really sparkles. I am a wee bit concerned how long they will last, the yarn seems to break fairly easily (yes, Saylor did chomp through the yarn on sock #1 halfway up the foot) but maybe that is just when there are sharp kitten teeth gnawing into it.
It will be hard to keep these off my feet, they are delicious. And did I mention the stitch pattern is beautiful? I wonder why it is that leaf patterned laces are so interesting to my brain. Maybe it's my childhood in the wilds of Wisconsin.
