Maple Leaf Sock Progress

I never thought I'd like this sock as much as I do! For the first time I'm knitting two at the same time on separate sets of size 0 dpns so that when I'm finished, I'm finished! I altered the pattern just slightly and added 10 rows of 4 x 2 rib between the maple leaf motifs and will add another few rows at the bottom of the second set of maple leafs to snug the leg of the sock a little. Yarn of choice is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in the colorway Glenwood. Sock pattern was designed by Jeanie Thompson and is available by joining her Thompson Sock KAL - see button on my sidebar. 150 of us all over the world signed up to start this pattern on July 1st and it's really fun to see how different the socks look with the different yarn and needle choices. Thank you, Jeanie, for another wonderful pattern!

I like your extra ribbing...it gives the pattern a very cool look!!

I think I might borrow your idea of the ribbing. I've frogged 3 times, which gives me an excellent chance to try on what I have, and I'm just a bit concerned about the fit. I agree, it really gives the pattern a very cool look!

Sue, These are gorgeous. The color-way is really pretty. I have not used Lorna's Laces yet...but a have a couple of skeins patiently waiting their turn. May have to move them up in line....
