I finished my Embossed Leaves socks.

Pattern: Embossed Leaves by Mona Schmidt – Favorite Socks

Yarn: Spirit Trail Fibreworks “Alexandra” – 2 skeins (actually a hotter pink in real life but my camera was having none of it)

Needles: 2.75 mm Clover dpns

These were a fun and quick knit although I was never able to memorize the pattern.

Lookie here!

A truckload of reluctant teens was delivered to our street this morning armed with weedwackers, mowers and ‘tude.  Those five foot weeds are now a rectangle of patchy mulch in our front yard.  It is nice to look outside and not feel like you live in a terrarium.
