Socks #7 finished!

After one false start on these socks I'm done and happy with the results!  Plus the feet can model a complete pair now (mom found them at an antique store for those of you who asked and I didn't have a way to answer you back!)

Pattern:  Embossed leaves from Favorite socks
Yarn: Happy feet (won on Tienne's blog)  This is the first time I've used this yarn and am happy so far.  It knit well and the fabric it created feels nice.  Now to see how they wear!
Needles: US 1.5
Mods:  I added an extra pearl stitch between all the leaf patterns to bring the stitch count up to 68...which works perfect for me!

It has been a fun week here....DH and I celebrated anniversary #7, boy does time fly! .... Knox (the cat) got fleas for the first time....and tomorrow I get to babysit! (I'm quite excited about that actually....enjoying others cute babies for awhile is always fun!)

great color with that pattern. Happy feet indeed.

Happy Anniversity! Fleas, yuck. Last year the boys came in with fleas. I went to ebay & brought the stuff that you get from vets. gave everyone an eyedropper behind the neck and so far not fleas.
Enjoy your weekend.

Great color/pattern match. I especially like the transition between the pattern and the bottom of the foot ~ very smooth and defined. Happy Anniversary!!!

Yay - they look great! I hope to get to see them this evening. =)

And yeah, if the whole world could pause while I was traveling, it would be fantastic. I think I'm going to have just enough time to get caught up before I leave town all over again. Blargh.
