earth's big finish

Project Spectrum comes to a crossroads as earth approaches the threshhold of air. My last bit of earth is my finished Embossed Leaves. I love this pattern, I love how the pattern is echoed in the toe decreases, I love the plain stockinette heel. I have knit this particular sock 3 times and am still in love with it.


Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt from Interweave Winter 2005
MadelineTosh Malachite

Tomorrow shall kick off air...good bye May.

Woo Hoo! You finished! They came out great! Perfect end to another color grouping. I was a bad project spectrum participant for the past two months! I can't believe it is June already!

Those are some gorgeous socks! I was just perusing that pattern this morning! I didn't realize it had a stockinette heel! I'll have to read the pattern again!
I love the yarn color - it's a perfect match with the pattern. You have great taste!

So lovely. I've been wanting to try this pattern for a while now, and every time I see another pair of embossed leaves, I think "why haven't I started those yet?" Love the color, too.
