The Pictures You've Been Waiting For...


I finally took some sock pics of my new Falling Leaves socks from knitty. Just to refresh your memory, the yarn is from Sunshine Yarns, and it is in the Figi colourway. As usual, this yarn knit up very nicely, and I actually had a fair amount left over. Finishing this pair in March means I get a nice "M" to go with my previous "F" for the sock-a-month knit along.

I've already cast on and started the Embossed Leaves socks from the Winter Interweave Knits magazine. I'm using the Koigu I picked up from the Knit and Stitch Shoppe in West Vancouver. It's a pretty purple and blue color.


Well, I'm off to do some knitting for the evening! I hope everyone's doing well.


Thanks for all of your congratulations about my promotion. I love this knit blogging community that I'm so lucky to be a part of. And did everyone see that my aunt left a comment? Isn't that cool!?! My first family member to comment.

I love the socks. I am also tying to knit the same pattern. Did you knit into the back of the yarn-overs? I am not getting the yarn overs to show up. And I am loving the colorway that you chose as well.

Great pair of socks you have there! They are in a fantastic color. Great pictures, I like the box in the background ;)
Not to mention the floss. =P
I think I will have to learn to knit up some socks because you make me jealous when yours come out so pretty.
