Sockapaloooza Finish!


Here they are, basking in the sun. And here's a closer look.



They are knit on US 2 double points from Knit Picks Essentials Sock Yarn in Pumpkin. I actually think they are more a spice color, like cinnamon or nutmeg maybe. The color in the photos is fairly accurate, just a bit less orange and a bit more brown in real life. I used the same pattern as the test knit, Embossed Leaves. The only change I made was to shorten the foot by one half pattern repeat, and then I reversed the shaping on the toes to match where I ended in the pattern repeat. Otherwise, they are just the same as the first pair.

I have also finished the New England socks, but don't have a picture and the socks are at home.

Easter in Washington was great! Here are my cute grandchildren on Easter Sunday.


Bye for now!

What a cheerful color, and it works so nicely with the leaves pattern. I'm sure your sock pal would love them!
