What are you most proud of? The leaf motifs are original charts designed by me. I like my pin stripe heel and sole, and the mitten top toe. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Why not try to knit this using solid shades of yarn instead? These socks have simple leaf print motifs and acorn outlines worked against the variegated background. The socks are knitted from the top down with a two-color ribbed cuff. The heel is a traditional heel flap and gusset but knitted in a tailored pin-stripe with a matching pin-stripe mitten top toe.
