Mint Mojito Hederas

Hederas in the wild
One of my summer subway/lunchtime knitting projects has been Hedera socks, using the second installment of the Yarntini Sock Club, a variegated sock yarn made of 50% tencel and 50% superwash wool in the colorway Mint Mojito. This blend was just the thing for summer knitting. These socks have been completed for a little while, but had been waiting for the perfect photo op: an apple orchard near Rhinebeck!
I chose the Hedera pattern after drooling over Jessica's nearly identical socks: they are lacey, but there's only 2 lace rows, and they are easily memorizable (full disclosure: I still screwed them up here and there and had to rip back. *sigh*).
Hedera closeup
I used size 1 Crystal Palace needles, the only dpns that don't break. Seriously, I've broken all the wood dpns I've ever used, but bamboo rocks! And I'm afraid that with metal dpns, the needles would just glide out and be scattered all over the subway. Somehow, somewhere, I got tired of magic loop...
Jonagold?

Next up: a completed Ruffled Jacket, with matching armwarmers (because the elbow-length sleeves left my forearms cold).
