Maple Leaf Lace for "50 Socks-50 States"

This picture is Instep detail of Lace Maple Leaf Socks , shown in Crystal Palace
Panda Silk, color 4011 Cranberry Tones.

In my younger years, I spent many wonderful summers in western Ontario,
Canada where my grandparents had a log cabin home on a pristine spring-fed
lake abounding with natural beauty and wonders. Whenever seeing the Maple
Leaf emblazoned on the National Flag of Canada, my memories of those happy
times I spent in Canada resurface. And thus, when offered the opportunity to
design socks as a tribute to my northern neighbors, a maple leaf motif
seemed an obvious choice as a focal element.

Gorgeous! And the eyelets really look like maple leaves!

I spent many summer vacations in Ontario (I lived near Detroit) - and this color of Panda Silk really DOES look like the best of fall maple leaf color, too!
