Embossed Leaves Socks: Finished!

Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks, Interweave Knits Winter 2005
Yarn: Fortissima Socka, #1004, 2 skeins
Needles: 2 sets 16″ Addi Turbos, US 1 (2.5mm)

I finished these socks last weekend, but didn’t get around to taking some decent photos until today. After I’ve already worn them a few times, hence the pronounced fuzz around the socks in some places.

The pattern is lovely and easily adapts to the two-socks/two-circs technique. I did one less repeat on the leg portion, since I like my socks to be a bit shorter. And I did short-row heels.

The finished socks are a tad smaller than I would like; I probably should have used US 2s instead of 1s. But I think they’ll probably stretch out a bit more with more wear.

Fortissima Socka also isn’t the nicest sock yarn in the world. It can feel a little rough against the skin. The next time I knit such pretty socks, I might opt for prettier, more soothing sock yarn.
