embossed leaves socks

I didn't intend for this to turn into an all-knitting blog, but I have another finished knitting project to post! The pattern is "Embossed leaves socks" designed by Mona Schmidt from the Winter 2005 Interweave Knits. Embarrassingly, I started these in 2005 when this magazine came out! I got about half of one sock knit and then they sat around for 2 years until I picked them up again. They are done in Koigu Premium Merino, as the pattern calls for. The leaf motif was easily memorized so knitting went quickly, and I'm happy with the results!

Also...yesterday there was a new post in The Ladybug Letters, a wonderful and eloquent collection of stories pertaining to farming and food. Their site is also great because of the hundreds of recipes for every vegetable imaginable!
