New socks! Pretty colors!

Here are the pictures of my Embossed Leaves Socks I promised you:

Yes, they are sitting atop a bush. I finally realized that my pictures turn out better if I take them outside. Anyways, here's a close-up:

I love these socks, and I plan to make many, many more. I only made one small modification...starting the ribbing with a knit through the back loop instead of the purl, so that the knit ridge lines up with the center of the first leaves. The fit of these is great, since they're somewhat ribbed, but the Jitterbug I used is also divine. I'm pretty sure I'll have to have every color it comes in. Oh, dear.

That's really all I can report for right now, except for this (this one's for Leah):

I'm really not anal retentive. I swear.

I wish I had that many empty hangers! The colors are great and not something I had thought of. I do try to put a color hanger with the item that doesn't clash though.

Awesome socks too!

Thanks for sharing that closet picture.....I am not the only one and you have me beat on the closet!

More praise for jitterbug...I guess I'll have to indulge myself with some. The colors are so gorgeous. Your socks are lovely.

Congrats on the new job! I had to comment on your post about your embossed leaves socks because...I'm wearing my pair today! Crazy. Also, I'm inspired to add some color to my wardrobe.
