More Embossed Leaves

It’s official now… I am addicted to sock knitting. At 10 o’clock on Wednesday night, when I finished the Stinky socks, I immediately cast on again. What did I start? Well, truly there were way too many ideas cluttering up my brain so I went with the one that had the strongest pull and started another pair of Embossed Leaves socks. I guess that there are just some patterns that speak to you and this one calls my name loud and clear. I love that the pattern which I find easy and intuitive looks so detailed. As you can see I’m moving along pretty quickly on these and I’ll turn the heel today without a doubt. The yarn is Sundara’s Seaweed. I knew that it would be perfect for the EL pattern as soon as I saw it.

2nd EL Sox
Just in case you’re wondering if I’m doing anything at all besides socks I’ll mention the U-Neck top which is moving along nicely itself. I’m nearly finished with the back and I hope to start the front over the weekend.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
