Happy Red Socks Finished

I took a coworker to the ER this morning for some stitches and a tetanus shot after cutting into his hand with a box knife. That's a nasty one, really, it still makes me shudder. He'll be fine of course. And later in the day I managed to hold my shaking hands still enough to finish these socks!

It's a challenge to photograph one's own feet, so this is as good as it gets! They are a little loose, but I may gift them to someone with bigger feet (after a washing of course) so it all ends well.

Embossed Leaves, from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005 issue, Lornas Laces superwash sock yarn, about 9 days start to finish. I didn't do the specified cast on (the ribbed version of a long-tail cast on wasn't coming out even for me) and I ended with a Kitchener stitch rather than threading the yarn through the last few stitches. As usual, backgound fabric is from Superbuzzy!

Great! I, too, am a kitchener stich fan for toe closing over all others!
I'll have to add that pattern to my to-do list.
