March Socks : Embossed Leaves

Did March sneak up on you like it snuck up on me? I hardly feel like I got to enjoy February — or find much time to knit. I didn’t get to choose my March sock of the month until last week, and while I knew the pattern I wanted to use was Embossed Leaves, I wasn’t inspired by the yarn I had initially matched it with. I also didn’t have the right size double pointed needles for the other possibilities. In my search for a substitute, I fell in love with a skein of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity 20 from the Art Walk Series (“Iris“).  I can usually resist most of the  beguiling yarns that arrive at the shop where I work, but the idea of a yarn being a limited edition edition colorway can be irresistible. Ultimately though, when I cast on with the DPNs I had, I knew the Serenity 20 wasn’t going to work. Because I was committed to using Embossed Leaves, I did some quick rearranging of sock of the month projects and cast on with Colinette Jitterbug (“Vincent’s Apron”) instead:

Embossed Leaves

I am SO pleased with this combination and it’s been a very quick knit (helped along by marathon viewing sessions of Scandal).

There was also another potential sock option in the wings, however, because I wanted to reacquaint myself with Magic Loop. So I cast on for yet another sock — different yarn. More on that soon (and if you keep up with my Instagram, you might already know which yarn I am using).

  1. I have always liked this sock design, although I have not knitted it yet. I tried to knit it once a long time ago but I didn’t get gauge with the yarn I was using. I really should give it another go with a different yarn. Loving yours in this sunny yarn.

  2. embossed leaves have long been on my “knit someday” list. fun color that you chose too.

    and this post has made it painfully obvious to me that i never finished my february sock…

[url=http://www.ooobrand.com/bags/hermes/640.html]フランス語で「舷窓」を意味するブランド名通り、ウブロスーパーコピーはビス留めのベゼルをシンボルとする時計界の風雲児的なブランドです。1980年創業の新しいブランドで、デビュー早々ゴールドケースにラバーストラップを組み合わせるという当時としては”常識破り”の「スポーツ1520」を発表し、一大センセーションを巻き起こしました。その最初の顧客が軍事クーデターで国を追われた元ギリシャ国王コンスタティノス2世であったことも、伝説的な語り草です。キッチュとも言える組み合わせの妙は、正当的な高級時計に飽きた王族などの上流階級に大人気となり、ウブロ時計コピーは”王の時計”とも呼ばれました。 フュージョン=融合をコンセプトとするウブロは、その後も伝統的な時計作りと革新的な発送を融合させて”常識破り”のウォッチを発表し続けています。ゴールドとラバーの組み合わせが他社に追随されると、今度はタンタリウムのケースにチタンのビス、タングステンの自動巻ローターといった仕掛けを施し、さらには文字盤も目盛りも針も真っ黒という「オールブラック」モデルで意表をつくなど、常にスーパーコピー腕時計の世界に新風を吹き込んでいます。[/url]
