Yes, dearies, you read that title correctly. The uncouth philistine who brought you the Single Sock Liberation Movement all those months ago has finished a pair. A PAIR. Wow, I can actually wear the socks I've knit! And match! How crazy is that!
The real question is, how could I not finish these?? I was quite smitten with the first sock; the pattern and yarn color was just such a happy marriage that I had to have the mate!
Finished: Embossed Leaves Socks
Pattern: Embossed Leaves from Favorite Socks, designed by Mona Schmidt
Fiber: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks That Rock lightweight in Olivenite
Size: women's foot
Needles: size 1.5 Knitpicks circular needle
Date Started: November 2007
Date Completed: January 2008
Notes: I really, really love this pattern. The pattern repeats are simple and painless, but the resultant leaf motif is awesome. This pattern is what they call a whole lotta bang for your buck! I will definitely knit more Embossed Leaves someday.
So, there you have it. I'm off to a good start on my resolution to knit mates for at least these 12 single socks. One down, eleven to go. Though, I do have a secret that some of you know: I've actually gotten another mate finished. Expect a full report on that sock very, very soon. Look at me, I'm a finisher!
Preliminary exams update: first exam was moved to this Monday, since the original scheduled time conflicted with the course I am TAing this spring. Thus, the cramming continues for another few days before the real fun starts... Life! I want my life back!
