Officially Done

The Embossed Leaves socks:

Pattern by Mona Schmidt, printed in Favorite Socks
Yarn Cherry Tree Hill supersock solid 'Bark'
Needles size US1

Now I can't wait for some cooler weather so I can wear these.

The Go with the Flow socks are progressing nicely. I'm not the gushy type, but I love-love-love the Cherry Tree Hill 'Burgundy' yarn I am using. The color is ruby red and seems to glisten. Yum! I haven't knit with all the sock yarns available, but CTH is my current fave. And they are having a contest to name their new supersock solid colors. Go here to enter.

wow these are great.. Is there any group related to this pattern. It seems to be to tight. I would like to know how to increase the pattern,,any ideas??

The pattern calls for US2 needles, but I used US1 and these socks fit my size 11 feet just fine. If I wanted them a bit bigger, I would try US2 needles first. I think adding a pattern repeat would make them too big. Or you might contact the pattern author for ideas on increasing the size a bit.

Hi Abby,
The socks are beautiful. I finished a pair of wool socks this summer, and I have been wearing them. They are surprisingly not hot. They say wool can keep you warm or cool. I guess they're right.
Re. EZ, I do admire clever construction. EZ has a lot of this, but I don't like anything else about her.
