Embossed Leaves Socks in Bugga

Now on the needles is Embossed Leaves Socks in my Bugga yarn: Praying Mantis. This yarn asked me for a leafy pattern. I had always intended to go back and knit this pattern in a semi-solid yarn. This yarn was perfect for that. A content of 20% cashmere makes this a fabulous yarn to knit with!!

Wow, great colour and stitch definition. If they feel half as nice as they look, they're incredible!

This is the perfect pattern for this yarn, it must be quite sqooshy and soft, your feet are in for quite a treat. By the way I'll have to order The Eclectic Sole book as I can't find it locally, I went to a large bookstore that has several shelves of knitting books, but to no avail. I may call a knitting store or two before I give up. I shudder to think of my book going thru the Christmas rush, the postal service is short staffed this year.
