Leyburn Socks

January 23, 2008 Posted by Vaire

Last year I knit a pair of Leyburn Socks. I'd had problems to find a good pattern for this yarn because it's striping was somewhat erratic. I wanted something more interesting than plain socks, but not too busy. The Leyburns' pattern fit the bill to a T.

Naturally Mao had to come and see why I was sitting on the floor. He lost interest soon because I ignored him. If I'd tried to shove his ass out of the picture, he'd decide I was good for a petting session.
