IK Embossed Leaves in Koigu KPPPM 105D

Planet Earth Fibers beaded silk in color Rouge

Now I need to figure out how to add the beaded silk…
lacy trim?
embroidery?
leaves?

On my first attempt the colors were pooling so that one side of the sock was red and the other side was green:

I modified the pattern, removing the first stitch of the leaf chart for a total of four stitches per round. Just enough to make the colors swirl in a nice spiral:

Modified for swirling instead of pooling

    ooooo pretty! I’ve always wondered, how do the toes feel knit up like that? I really need to find mine so that i can finish and finally wear them!!

      The toe decreases are pretty, but I didn’t like the final step to cinch up the last eight stitches. I modified the toe closure to a kitchener stitch for the last eight stitches. The toe decreases caused the stitches to rotate so I had to move the stitches around on the needles to get them to lay evenly on two needles for kitchener stitching.
