Embossed Leaves finally finished.

I'm not sure what the mental stumbling block with finishing these was. The yarn is beautiful soft and a delight to knit with, the colours (which I hand-dyed myself) are stunning, the pattern was fun and interesting, and the finished product is just lovely. Yet these socks took me 2 long months to knit. In fact between the time I initially cast on and now, I started and finished 2 different pairs of socks, a sweater, a hat and a bag. I now officially have only one active WIP (Rosedale - ugh) and 3 hibernating UFO's; February Baby Sweater, Annetrelac socks (due for a big frogging), and the Grignasco Tyrol cardigan that we don't discuss.

So here ya go, check these out! I love them (but I'm glad they're finished)
pattern: Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt from "Favorite Socks"
yarn: The Knittery's merino/cashmere sock blend
dye: gaywool - Stringybark and Sandstone, and Landscape - waratah and wild raspberry
