Embossed Leaf Sock

Last Thursday I finished the Embossed Leaf Socks. This is only the third sock pattern I have knit and I'm glad I did.

Embossed Leaf Sock

When it comes to socks and sweaters, I love the comfort of the using the same structure over and again. Unfortunately, you don't learn much taking the same road every day.

From the ribbed long tail cast on, to the tulip decreases toe, I thoroughly enjoyed knitting outside of my safe zone and learning some new tricks.

I'll probably knit this sock again some day. It was a really quick knit, and even when it was put down for weeks on end, I had no problem picking back it up where I left off.

I love this pattern - the only sock worthy of a three-peat (so far) for me:) Yours are gorgeous! I cast on my Shetland Triangle on Sunday - 2 repeats into the body so far - I think I'll try to commit to one repeat a night!

Beautiful socks, as per usual! You are so talented!
I tend to gravitate toward favorite patterns too, but it's good to branch out every now and again. I'm knitting a Nancy Bush pattern now. It's by and far the most difficult sock I've ever knit,but it's also been fun to learn new things.

For some reason, that pattern flew off my needles too. It's such a fun one.

Cool toe! I'll have to try that one. it's really neat!
