Central Park Knitting and Finished Socks

Posted by allie on November 13, 2006

A little late for Socktober, but I finally finished my Embossed Leaves Socks!! My very first pair of completed socks, you have no idea how exciting it is for me!!!

Pattern: Embossed Leaves Socks from Interweave Knits Winter 05
Yarn: Lanett Superwash Wool
Needles: size 1 1/2 Brittany birch dpn’s. I love knitting with these needles until they inevitably break
Modifications: Needle size and number of cast-on stitches… I like tighter-knit fabric

Here’s my swatch for the Central Park Hoodie:

Now I’m nearly finished with the back of the sweater:
