Oak leaf stockings

When I was a little girl I lived in the country on many acres of land with my grandparents. Recently that old home was torn down by the new owners sad but that is life. Parts of the house I grew up in were over 100 years. So it was a historical house that is no more. The property was full of real big beautiful oak trees that I loved playing under. I am making these stockings in memory of those trees and the color I chose was a reminded to me of the bug houses that lived on those trees.
It took me awhile to find a pattern for the oak leaves that I liked. Once I did find one it was in French and had some pretty unique symbols in it  nothing like translating knitting from one language to another oi painful. I had to frog these socks four times to just get to this point. But now I know how to make this pattern and could not be more pleased with them. I have since found some other versions that incorporated acorns may add those to the back of the stockings or may make another set with them. The yarn I am using is Red Heart Stardust in orange (but the colors are actually orange with hints of red, yellow and purple). It is machine washable and discontinued. The fiber has a little sparkle in it too which I like reminds me of due on the leaves. Since I am incorporating multiple patterns together to make this item I hope it comes out OK as I am also winging it a ton too.
