Embossed Leaves Socks

It's dark and pouring rain outside, not so good for photos, but hopefully you can still see how pretty my new socks are:

These are from the winter 2005 issue of IK, designed by Mona Schmidt. (You can read a recent interview with Mona here -- and Lolly also includes photos of more than a dozen finished EL socks! Love that.) I used Koigu KPM (colour: 1128), and the Magic Loop on a 2.25mm needle, as usual. I'm very pleased with my new dress-up socks.

I'd recommend this pattern. The socks look very fancy, but they're quick and easy to knit. They're stretchy and comfortable. They have a great toe. They look cute in shoes. What more could you want?
