i’m feelin’ socksy…

embossed leaves

FO report

pattern: embossed leaves from interweave knits, winter 2005 by mona schmidt
yarn: lang yarns jawoll superwash, 2 skeins in some sorta pinky color
needles: brittany birch 2.75mm (US2) dpns
start date: i have no idea, but it was many moons ago
end date: 5/1/07? i don’t really know that either…
mods: i did an actual tubular cast-on, and a slip stitch heel
notes: the pattern’s lovely – i love the star toe finishing the leaves in the pattern. the yarn? well, i payed $3.40 per skein at closeknit, and didn’t love it at all. it’s not squashy, it’s sorta rough. but the color’s pretty. i had frogged and restarted this yarn 4945143901823 times so it got sorta grimy, so i washed it before photographing it. so it gets grimy, but it cleans up well!

anyhow, for all the pics, click on the mosaic!
