One down, eleven to go

Yes, another post about the Leyburns. But can you blame me? I finished these babies last Thursday and gave them a bath that evening. They didn’t dry up thoroughly until this afternoon so no photos until now.

Aibi is quite pleased. The colour on the first one, or lack thereof, is about a third of the actual colour. My camera settings are off.

Pink Leyburns
Yarn: Socks That Rock Lightweight
Colourway: Rosebud
Needles: 2.25mm circulars
Notes: Eastern cast on toe-up, 51 stitches on foot and 67 on leg, followed the double-wrap short-row heel tutorial by cosmicplutoknits and the picot-edge cuff sewing off tutorial from Jeannie.

Socks #1 for 2009 – right on schedule

I use the KFB (knit into the front and back of the stitch) when doing my toe increases. I like it better than the M1s because those create visible holes. As Cristi (turtlegirl76) would say, toe pic!

I love the roundness of it

And the picot edge cuff. I’m inlove with this sucker and might do all my socks this way. Of course not the ones for the male members of my family.

Gentle peaks and valleys

I’m happy with this pair and will want to knit another pair of Leyburns this year but in a wilder colourway.
