I really love these socks:
Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks, by Mona Schmidt. Published in Interweave Knits, Winter 2005.
Yarn: Elann's Baby Cashmere in Serengeti Sand (#3724). I used 3 balls, leaving one left over.
Needles: KnitPicks Double-Points, US2s (3.0 mm).
Alterations: I completed a total of six sixteen-row lace repeats instead of the seven indicated for the pattern. My foot size is smaller than the size for the pattern. This change worked out perfectly.
Impressions: The pattern is very well written and easy to follow. I really like the twisted rib on the cuff and the effect of the star-type decreases for the toe - this created a very smooth line and, of course, a lovely toe!
The baby cashmere yarn was a joy to work with. The fabric is quite soft and wonderful... a pleasure on the feet. The resulting socks are very lovely and I imagine that they will get a lot of wear from your's truly :)
NOW to decide which socks to make next!! I picked up some Socks that Rock in Carbon Dating at the last Stitches that I'm just itching to play with... but what pattern to use?! Does anyone have any suggestions??
