Cascading Leaves Socks
I finished these socks a few days ago. They are knit with KnitPicks sock yarn, Dancing on size 2 dpns. The pattern is called Cascading Leaves by Jeanne Townsend. This pattern is a very fun knit, although the yarn takes some getting used to because of the elastic in it. I'm afraid that I didn't have my tension right when I cast on which caused them to be loose, so I sewed some elastic in the top of each sock which seemed to do the trick :D

Wow!

I've got to admit, I'm intimidated by socks... I think I'll stick with scarves & blankets for a while longer.

Those turned out really well!

I love those! I think you've inspired me to use my Dancing yarn with that pattern. :D

I was hoping we would see some of your socks soon. They look great. Where did you find the pattern?
