One Sock, Two Socks

Green Socks, New Socks

Just getting a picture took awhile since my boy Hershey felt it necessary to rub his face all over them first. I'm not sure if he was staking a claim on my feet or the wool :-)

Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt from Interweave's Favorite Socks (25 Timeless Designs)

Yarn: Knitpicks Bare fingering weight dyed with lots of Green Apple Kool Aid.

Needles: Well used Crystal Palace Bamboo Size 2.

Cheats...Well ok, so I did a regular long tail cast-on. I haven't quite figured out the tubular that Ms.Schmidt uses.

Loads of fun to knit and I love the way they turned out. Thank Ms. Schmidt and Interweave!

Next up? Not sure. I need to make the 2nd Pride Sock mainly so all those balls of yarn can be put up. But I'd kind of like to try my hand at the STR Monkey or perhaps a scarf. Or..maybe all of them at the same time. Nah...that's probably not a great idea.

Great job! Those look like they will keep your feet nice and toasty this winter while brighten up the midwinter gloom.

Love the socks!

I'm finishing my own pair of bright green ones and I love that color.

Love, love, love them. What an awesome job you did.

I will definitely have to try that pattern out.
