Embossed Leaves is a pattern I've had in my queue forever. It just needed the perfect shade of green. I found that in Pinewood - a colour Mom created when we got our first shipment of Twisted Top Cat. I love it - it's a has varying shades deep green with touches of brownish-green.
The Twisted Top Cat is a joy to knit with. Soft and warm like our regular Top Cat, but with a high twist that adds that extra sproing!
The pattern is very easy - and one of those patterns just seem to make the knitting fly by. I made a few small mods: 1) the cuffs are shorter - only about 4 inches (and just the way I like them!). 2) The foot has a star toe, but I just continued the pattern right to the end.
