Falling Leaves

The Falling Leaves socks are finally done (yes, these are the socks I started while in Ireland). There was something so serene about finished up the second sock.. maybe it was because this pair is now tied to so many wonderful and beautiful memories of a place far away?! I hope so...




Kali was very impressed with the socks too. She spent about 10 minutes sniffing every last detail...




Pattern: Falling Leaves pattern from Knitty.com
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns in Shamrock
Measurements: Made to fit a women's 8.5
Started: May 20, 2006
Finished: August 29, 2006
Other Details: The pattern got really boring after a while, but it is really beautiful! I love how my yarn knit up and thought that this colorway was so perfect for the pattern and the trip to Ireland :)

the perfect yarn for that pattern! I did that same pattern and was glad they were finally done...the pattern is nice, but gets a bit tedious after a while! They are beautiful!

Hi Dani - love the socks! What size needles did you use? I tried 2.0 and 2.5 and kept getting an UGLY result. Thanks!
