Embossed Leaves Socks

These are really gorgeous in person and the details the designer included are wonderful. They are the Embossed Leaves socks from Interweave Press Favorite Socks, knit on #1 needles from handpainted Wildfoote Sock yarn in the color Sonantina. I changed only a couple of things, one of which was the breaking of the yarn at the heel and reconnecting. Just seemed unnecessary to me. The toe has an echo of the leaf design done by judicious use of purls and decreases. Lovely design.
