Embossed Moms

I started these socks forever ago, with the intention of giving them to my mom for Christmas. Well, that didn't happen - she got a pile of books instead. They languised as one cuff for the longest time. Until about two weeks ago, then I ramped up the action.

The second sock took only a matter of days. It's amazing how quick they are to knit when you really get into the pattern.
Pattern: Embossed Leaves
Yarn: Lornas Laces Shepherd Sock in Periwinkle (my mom loves this colour).

A close up of the pattern. This is one of the prettiest sock patterns I've ever seen.

I cannot believe I still haven't made this pattern. Very pretty blue leaves.

(my word verification is 'molest'!)
