interweave knits embossed leaves socks as shown knitted here by coleen.

these are called meida's socks designed by (duh!) nancy bush from interweave knits spring '97. i knitted them with cashmere from hunt valley cashmere. i washed them in the shower yesterday, and made these coat hanger sock blockers following instructions from needletrax, and hanged them to dry outside on the porch.
