It's ages since I last finished some knitting, so I'm pleased these are finally done.
They're Mona Schmindt's Embossed Leaves Socks (ravlink) from Interweave's 'Favorite Socks' that I've knitted from Madelinetosh Sock in a great colour called 'Ink'. They're the first completed socks from my 2010 Personal Sock Club. In April, when I faced up to the fact I was very far behind with my Personal Sock Club, I reset my sock knitting schedule for 2010. The deadline for this pair was June 4, and I finished these at a quarter to midnight yesterday - June 4. I made it! I'm good with deadlines.
While knitting these I've decided that, lovely though the leafy pattern is, I don't really like having lacy patterns on the foot part of my socks. So for my next PSC socks I'm reverting to ever-wonderful Nancy Bush vintage inspired socks. I've chosen the simple, traditional Oak Ribbed Sock (ravlink).
The randomly chosen 'delivery' of yarn is Knitabulous's Merino Sock in the wonderfully named colour 'Count Sockular' - reds and greys with a snippet of grey yarn for decorative toes.
The deadline for these? 15 July.
