I just finished my Leyburn Socks (free pattern found here
I had been eager to use the Rio de la Plata, color SP04, that I bought the weekend of Mother's Day...
A word about the yarn. This was one skein of yarn that I wound into two separate balls. My original intent had been to knit them two-at-a-time. I wound up doing them separately using Magic Loop. But, when I finished, I realized that they look like they were made from different colors!! It's very strange and not at all pleasing to me.
Oh well. I'll still wear them. One thing's for sure...nobody else will have a pair like them!
Quickie stats: I began this project on June 6 and completed it today, June 21. I used 80g of yarn on size 1 1/2 needles. I completed 11 pattern repeats from the heel up.
And now, more pictures!
