First Sock




I chose the Embossed Leaves socks as the first to knit from this book. I have to say it is one of the best patterns I've ever knit. It is well written, and so addictive that it worked up very quickly! I used Sisu by Sandness Garn and 2.5mm needles. I love how the toe completes the leaf, and the twisted rib cuff is my new favourite!

Ooh, what a gorgeous pair of socks! Thanks so much for posting your photo...I had wanted to try this pattern but was unsure of what color I wanted to make. Now I know! Lovely!

I made these socks back when they were in the magazine and you are right, they are addictive. I had to stop myself after the 3rd pair telling myself 'there are other socks out there'. But I do love this pattern.
