Leyburn Socks!
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!

wow! lovely socks! i really like making socks with self-striping or variegated yarn for the very reason that they don't usually come out perfectly matched. they are truly *one of a kind*. linknit41

I really LOVE those socks. I love the pattern and the colors. I think you did a great job! And your sock modeling - very high fashion, very editorial (as Tyra Banks would say).

Those are some of the prettiest socks! I love the yarn, it looks heavenly. Beautifully knit and amazing modeling. You should go into foot modeling!!!

You guys are so sweet...and funny too!

My son took the pictures, so I figured we'd go for as many as possible and hope for the best. He did a wonderful job!
