Lost Leaves .. a New FO.

Another pair of socks in a week. I've finished the Embossed Leaves. As suspected, the pattern is lost in the yarn. Sigh...
But here they are in their heavenly completion:

Embossed Leaves

Start Date: July 20, 2008

End Date: July 26, 2008

Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome, Birches colorway

Knitpicks circular, Harmony US 2, 2.75mm

The jury is out as to whether or not I like this CTH Sockittome. It's got nylon in it, which isn't a bad thing. It almost feels acrylic-ish though. I'll see how it is after it has its bath. It is loosely spun and tends to split from time to time. The colors are beautiful though. I have three hanks of it which I bought on clearance when a store was going out of business last year. So, have to use it up! I like the more tightly spun yarns, they show the stitches better.

What's next? Smooshy Froot Loops, anyone?
