Well, Maybe Not So Bad.....

So here's the first sock for DD#2 and she loves it - the pattern, the color, the fit. She just got new clogs and the socks are perfect for them. The clogs are mostly purple felted wool with leather trim, so she will have color-coordinated feet. Now I have to decide on a sock for DD#1, which will be made of FdC 501 in that dark eau de Nil green, such a nice green. I think something with a leaf motif: Embossed Leaves, Falling Leaves, Zokni (uses Drooping Elm Leaf lace). If you know a sock pattern with a leaf lace motif, please pass it on. FdC 501 is DK-weight; I use size 3 needles and get 7 to 7.5 sts/in in stockinette st in the round. I'll need a pattern I can modify down to 44 to 48 sts total to fit DD31 (she's skinny).
