Embossed Leaves Socks

Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks
Interweave Knits Winter 2005
Mona Schmidt
Yarn: Opal UNI
Color: Teal
Needles: US 1

I used the tubular cast on recommended by the designer. I liked it. It is stretchy and it was nice to learn a new technique, especially one that works. The yarn is also a new one for me. It comes in many solid colors and I want to find a good "go to" yarn for color work. I will compare this with Lang Jawoll after a few washings. I also have some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in the cupboard, which seems to be a favorite amongst knitting bloggers. Maybe a new favorite will emerge.

Wow! I can't believe how gorgeous these socks turned out! The pattern is to die for - actually I had it on my "Have to do" list for so long already, just never started it yet - but I definitely will after seeing your great version of that pattern! I also love the yarn you've been using for it, it seems to be perfect to make the pattern really "jump out", so to say. Fantastic work!
