Blues Project


I've been waiting for Project Spectrum blue month to start these socks in Koigu solids blue. I love Koigu-so springy and interesting with its monochromatic varigations. The pattern is Interweave Knits Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt. So far I have only one, but can the second one be far behind?

The pattern is different in that the first couple of ribbing rows are knit back and forth, and the yarn is broken at the end of the gusset. Needle one is actually the needle I am used to being needle 4.
After a few halting starts, the lace was easy to do. I am in love with this pattern. H

very nice progress on your embossed leaves... I love the almost solid Koigu colorways too... just very hard to find.
