Water for the Elephants

My Ravelry project page

I finished my latest pair of socks last week and I am in love.  I used madelinetosh sock in the fawn (white) and mourning dove (blue) colorways.  I absolutely fell in love with the MD as soon as I cast on.  It has such depth and the subtle tones work well in the pattern.

The scroll work is gorgeous on its own, but the elephants sell the pattern.  The are too cute to pass up.  I think that's why I dove right into them after finishing my Rose socks.

This is the best I can do at the moment for the elephants, I am finding it a little tough to take a picture of the outside of my own leg.  

I would like to thank Rose a million and one times for this free (yes, FREE!) pattern.  She states it's more or less her notes on the socks, but it is still wonderfully put together.  It's clear and straightforward and I found it pretty easy to follow. I see more of her socks in my drawer in the future! And there are definitely a lot to choose from!

Of course, after I finish these it's 70 degrees outside...

So pretty!
I have the pattern in my queue.
You should have been here, still need wool socks with -17 C when we woke up ;)

The weather here is so strange. Yesterday it was close to 70 and right now it's 39 degrees.

This pattern is great. I have a feeling I might knit them again, my mom is sort of amazed by them.

Those are so beautiful! I agree; Rose is very generous to share her amazing patterns.

Thank you! I have a few more of hers in my queue! They are deceptively easy also. :)
