My friend who was the intended recipient of these socks arrived for a long visit, and the first order of business was to have a photo shoot with her new socks!
They fit her perfectly; I was so relieved and thrilled. She also loved them, though she couldn’t wear them for long because they were making her feet hot. She was a trouper though, and let me take a zillion pictures of her feet, in all different areas of the apartment.
We’ve decided on an official name for the socks: the beautifully redundant Zokni Socks. My friend’s heritage is Hungarian, and zokni is the word for socks in Hungarian. (We used an English-Hungarian online dictionary; she doesn’t know any Hungarian besides the names of foods.) We considered adding the word for leafy, but there comes a point where the name just starts to get confusing or weird, so plain ol’ Zokni Socks it is. I suppose they should rightly be called “lace leaf socks,” or “elm leaf socks,” but let’s hope that people still find the pattern even with this nondescriptive title.
I finished the pattern this morning and can send it out via email. As I say in the pattern, I’d love, love, love to get photos of any finished pairs e-mailed to me. I can make a gallery of shots.
For now, the pattern will be available via e-mail only (mintyfreshflavor at gmail). Don’t feel weird e-mailing me to request it, please! I will be able to send out the pattern almost immediately so there shouldn’t be a long time from wanting it to getting it.
