March socks of Araucania hand dyed yarn

I started with on skein of Araucania hand dyed yarn - I would tell you the color but the dog chewed the label - I used Cat Bordhi's New Pathways for Sock Knitters Book One pattern Veil of Leaves which produced these lovely textured socks:

I learned Cobblestone Cuff; Star toe and have almost mastered Judy’s Magic Cast-on.

The picture does not do the lace pattern justice but if you thought, I was going to ask anyone to model them – you are crazy – I loose socks that way!
My April socks may be short ones as time in the garden will be more important than anything.
Time to get the beauty rest Queen City Chess Tournament comes soon enough.

No crime at all - just being cautious with the socks as my feet get lonely without them ;O)
