August and September Socks

Hello All! Long time no see...

Having finally replaced the camera-to-computer cable that my cat so unceremoniously chewed, I am trying to catch up with my posts.

For August, here are my "Plain Jane," using leftover Essential from Knitpicks. Tabi toe-up (of course), with gusset increases on top of the foot. This was inspired by/adapted from a pattern on Knitty.

And in September, a pair for my DMIL for the holidays made in Trekking Pro Natura. It uses a simple k3p1 ribbing + a leafy pattern inspired by Peapod Baby Set by Kate Gilbert.
I also finished my October pair, which will be a holiday gift for DFIL--that'll be for a future post.

Happy sock knitting!

I haven't been able to find the original pattern I saw, but I can try to explain what I did--although there is a solid amount of improvisation in it. If you are interested, feel free to send me an email at hmjulien at yahoo dot com, or to contact me at Grenouille on Ravelry.
