Here are the socks as they came off our needles this week. Pathetic, right?
But, wait! They only need the magic of blocking to bloom from ugly ducklings into the swans they were meant to be.
Except.....Just as we went to post this photo, we thought, "Hmmmm, isn't there something a little ..... weird! ... about the cuffs?" Yup. One of them is 'by the book' and the other is ...... not. :( But if anyone out there thinks we're going to re-do that sock, s/he's out of his/her everlovin' mind!
Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt. It's a GREAT pattern. We've made it before with no problem. It helps if your head's in a place where you can concentrate though. We bought an entire book just to get this pattern. Now, you can buy the pattern all by itself.
Yarn: Louet Gems fingering weight yarn, soft coral. 2 skeins (185 yd. each)
Needles: 2.5 mm double points
