Embossed Leaves - part I

I finally finished my first embossed leaves sock. I absolutely love the yarn and the pattern too.

I really like the pattern because there always was something different to do to keep it interesting (i.e not too many straight pattern repeats - yawn).

Here are some pics - they don't show off the colours too well........



.......so I'm glad I took this pic of the second skein before I wound it. I think this might be my favourite colour combo ever. So far.

I just switched the TV on and Martin Bashir's interview with Princess Diana is on. It seems like a lifetime ago when she died, and I think this interview was filmed not too long before her death. She was so incredible, it is sad that she never knew how incredible we all thought she was. What a terribly sad time for our country and for me too - I remember crying lots. Lots.

I think she would be proud of her boys.

Speaking of her boys. Mine are going to school in 10 days time. Tick tock, tick tock...,..

We haven't had a picture of them in a while, have we. I'll see what I can do next time.

Happy weekend.

Wow. Those socks look great. I love the color. It was really sad watching all of that Princess Di stuff on tv. It was on right after the Elvis stuff was on. :(
