Everyone is making these socks and evertime I see them, I want to cast on mine! I have a rule that I can only have one pair of socks going at a time, so I have to wait. Oh, I hate waiting...

Jacey said...

Those socks are amazing! The pattern is awesome, and your yarn choice really reflects that.

Courtney said...

They look great! Such a beautiful color!

...beautiful!

Pretty, pretty, pretty! I'm going backwards; got to the toe and realized I was in denial about my heel, which had a :nipple:. Not acceptable! So I'm back at the heel...

Scrabblequeen said...

I've already queued the pattern, now you're really tempting me! My next pair of socks was supposed to be for the DH, but...Leyburns won't do for him, so I guess they'd have to be for me...right?

Bezzie said...

Ha ha! Potomac! How patriotic and timely!

Stacey said...

those are lovely! You used the same recipe as me :)

I really need to finish mine...

sgeddes said...

These turned out great. I just started knitting my first Leyburn. I figured it was time to put that STR stash to work!

chemgrrl said...

Loverly.

Stilaholic Nartian knits said...

Yay! Those came out great! Love this colorway. So glad you chose it. :D

Neuroknitter said...

Your Leyburns are beautiful!!! Great pictures, too!!!

I'm finished with the first, and need to to get crackin' on its mate!

Disco said...

BEAUTIFUL. That really is the perfect pattern for STR, don't you think.

Did you see I won the contest (again!)? Go me. Guess which colour I chose as my prize?

turtlegirl76 said...

Potomac is so pretty! Your socks look fantastic. Thanks for getting the ball rolling on this KAL!

Jadielady said...

They really are so beautiful!! I may have to add that to my que and knit those as a reward if I do a pair per month until the Fiber Festival in May.
(since I'd have to get more socks that rock first)

Zonda said...

Lovely colors!! Great job...mine, gosh gotta get them done soon! ;)

Erin said...

What a great pattern! They look fantastic.

Donna said...

I love that pattern. That is next in my sock knitting itinerary.

kasiaiscarly said...

love the socks. i wish i wasn't bored with that basic stitch pattern, but two fabrege cowls and a pair of fabrege mittens assures me i couldn't get through that pattern right now. love the colorway too. . .makes me want to knit with it from my stash :)

you can totally finish your projects up. . . i finished THREE up in New York and it feels great :)

cupcakefaerie said...

So, so, pretty! Getting closer to casting on my own pair.

silencepainter said...

I love your leyburns!

tiennie said...

Those are beautiful!

Auntie Pudentaine said...

I would not have a problem casting on for that sock in a hot minute, but the KAL...well, I would be amazed if I wasn't kicked right out...I am that bad. Knitting ADD keeps me from finishing. I knit every day, make progress every day, but finishing is just not in my vocabulary *sniff*sniff*

weezalana said...

They're beautiful! This pattern works so fab with STR. I swore off KALs a while ago, but y'all are killin' me, just killin' me!

Knitting Kris said...

Gorgeous socks! Must knit the Leyburn pattern soon!

hearthead said...

OOOOh, those are Puuurdy! I finally picked up my socks again, just working on the heel flap now. Love them!

Amanda said...

They're beautiful - great work! I'm turning the heel on my first one. Heehee. Too much sewing...

Marisol said...

I LOVE them! Man I better keep going on mine--I want my very own pair of lovely leyburns:)

Yours are gorgeous in Potomac:)

Cherie B. said...

Those are almost too pretty to put on feet!

Nell said...

The other power of the KAL is not being able to tear my eyes away from all the lovely colors. I'm SO CLOSE to finishing. Hopefully tonight.

Yours turned out beautifully.
