So yesterday after unwrapping the yarn I contemplated the pattern.
What pattern did the yarn want to be!
I arrived at Embossed Leaves Socks by Mona Schmidt in the Favourite Socks - 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave Knits.
This book is one of my favourites I love the spiral binding and the collection of sock patterns that are both beautiful and practical.
I also like the way it is presented an entire sock pattern at a time as opposed to the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Sock Book which has some patterns at the back preceeded by a whole heap of stitch options.
