Here’s a progress shot on my first Embossed Leaves sock.


The colors are a little less bright than they appear on my monitor, but it’s pretty close.  I’m very pleased so far.

Here’s a sciency/physics link for your perusal:  Goodbye wires.  Can you imagine a future when electronics don’t require a power cord or battery?

How about some hand-dyed self striping sock yarn?  It’s in stock right now, people!

I’m going to go knit some more.  Hubby’s birthday is this weekend, so I may not get a lot of knitting time.

Watch out for flying porcines!

Hubby saw my new socks-on-the-needles, and he likes them!  So much that he wanted them for himself.

Too bad he can’t have them.  I’ve got some other yarn stashed away that would be appropriate for him, so I guess I’ll have to work a pair of socks for him into the knitting queue.  At least his feet are only a man’s US 9.5.  It could be much worse, right?

Would you like to see the socks that changed Hubby’s mind?

Yes, that’s the 1×1 ribbed cuff of the Embossed Leaves pattern from Interweave’s Favorite Socks. 

In other news, I have to undo the bind-off for the Reid sleeve and add an inch.  I measured the sleeve with my new tape measure, and for some reason I thought the pull was included in the measurements.  Nope, it’s not.
