socks of 2006
detail of the embossed leaves socks from Interweave Knits winter 2005.
The detail on the heel is nice and I love the way the leaves make the stockinette bottom have a wavy edge.
Aren't they so cute? They are the perfect length. The pattern was easy to follow and memorize so they knit up superquick.
I knit them with the Merino/Tencel blend wool from Mind's Eye Yarn in Cambridge. She has an etsy store if you're interested!
These are a pair of knee socks. I used a basic toe-up pattern and then added increases for the calf. The stripes don't line up but I don't mind.
