FO for today!

WooHoo ~ Finished!

I love the star toe ~ it was easy!! And the French heel ~ also easy and so pretty.

The pattern is Embossed Leaves from Interweave Knits Winter '05.

Yarn is Senso (crochet) cotton/acrylic blend from Hobby Lobby and the needles were Addi #0 circs.

The pattern translated perfectly from DPNs to circs.

I have a size 6-6 1/2 shoe size, and the pattern was written for a larger foot, so I knit one less pattern repeat on the foot (thanks for the input, Mer) and it is a perfect fit!

So has anyone tried the Grilled Veggie recipe I put up a few posts ago?

It is one of our favorites - I usually keep the Blue cheese dressing in the fridge.

Wow! I love them! I've never heard of a star toe or french heel and you make me want to try them both. Great job! I have a small foot also so will keep the one less repeat in mind.

You have done a marvelous job with the socks, they are beautiful. I love the colour, blue is a favourite of mine.

I have the IK magazine that they were in and I am going to make them when I finish ALL my WIPs, which will probably be sometime next year!!!!

Love the socks. The yarn looks really shiny. I think that adds to the pattern.
