They're done!! I looooove them so much. :inlove:
It made me crazy happy just to knit these and it didn't take long. I guestimated the needle size needed and they fit like a glove. So much for gauge swatches!!
I got some much needed help from some of you here and I soooooo greatly appreciate it!
WOOT!!

ooh! They look comfy! I love the color! Very Pretty!

I am a newbie and haven't tried knitting one (or a pair) yet. I am sure when I start I won't be able to stop. I :heart: socks... especially funky ones, and knitting my own would be fun!

Whoops!!
Forgot the details!!
The yarn is Koigu KPM.
The pattern is Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt from Interweave Knits mag winter 2005 .
I used size 3 addi turbo circ.
These were my first lace pattern socks and I think it helped me avoid Second Sock Syndrome! I will definitely be making more.

Those look great! I am working on the same pattern, I am on the heel flap of sock #1. I am using Colinette Jitterbug in Moss - awesome. I agree, the pattern is totally addictive! And I can't wait to see how the toe works!
