pattern: embossed leaves socks design by Mona Schmidt IK Winter 2005
yarn: koigu pppm, 2 skeins & a bit of Lorna’s Laces
needles: lantern moon rosewood dpns size US 2
modifications: used a different CO than the one specified in the pattern
notes: I started knitting the second sock on Thursday and by late last night I was almost finished, with just the toe left to knit. Usually I would listen to the obsessive-compulsive thoughts of perfection in my head and wait to finish this sock next week, after checking my LYS for more yarn, so the toe would be perfect. But I decided to make due with what I had at home and consider it a lesson in accepting imperfection in an object and my knitting. It also seemed wasteful to buy another skein for only 13 teeny-tiny rounds, so Lorna’s Laces from my stash completed the toe.
thoughts: The variegated yarn I used overpowers the pattern. Solid colors serve as a better canvas for knitting lace designs.
