Embossed Leaves Socks

Another finished pair of socks. I love finishing things not only because now I get to wear them, but I can start something new. Not that having a large number of unfinished objects has ever stopped me from starting something else, but I don't feel guilty at all.
They are the Embossed Leaves Socks from interweave Knits in Koigu. I couldn't seem to get a decent picture of he colour of them and I have lost the band which tells me the colour number.

Finishing the toe on my second sock was all my weekend craft. Mum and Dad came to visit and we went to the Balingup Field Day which was great for the first hour and then the girls went a little feral. It was our 6th wedding anniversary on Saturday so Chris and I managed dinner out by ourselves and yesterday the girls and I went out for a really nice lunch with friends.
So hopefully today I can get started on the sewing that needs to be done. One thing I'd love in the future is a sewing room, that doesn't have to be packed away when visitors come. Things always seem to be misplaced when piles are moved and put back - hours seem to be lost finding things and you just can't sew when you have the urge. So that's a goal for the future.

The socks are beautiful, you inspire me to do so many crafty things, but they are way out of my league.
