Knitting Notes

Pattern: Embossed Leave Socks from Interweave Favorite Socks
Yarn: Knit Pick's Imagination in the Frog Prince colorway
Needles: size 2


My second pair of Embossed Leaves socks are done. I really like this pattern - it flies off the needles and looks lovely without being very difficult. (I also now understand the purpose of the seemingly crazy extra M1 stitch in the foot. I left it out by accident this time around, and there's definitely a slight lack in pattern definition on that side of the foot. Nothing bad, but I can see it.) So these are ready to ship off to Texas, though it turns out I could have waited a week, since L'll be out of town until next Monday, so I can't ship them until later in the week anyway.

This means I can concentrate on my Moonflower socks. I did frog and restart them, but I've only got a couple of pattern repeats done. I do have all of March to finish them, but I have plans for a March Sockdown pair of socks as well, so I'd really like to get the Moonflowers done sooner rather than later. And there's also the small matter of the two scarves and sweater I have sitting around. I definitely need to do something about my start-itis. It's getting a little out of control.
