Grape Leyburn

According to Ravelry I started this pair on April 7th and finished them on May 3rd. The pattern is Leyburn and it's a freebie. It's a great pattern that uses slipped stitches and floats to create a pattern. Just be careful to keep your floats really lose over your heel - otherwise you can't get them on. Don't ask how I know. As is my usual - these were knit toe up, two at a time, using 2.00 mm 47" circular needle. The yarn is Malabrigo sock in the grape colorway. The color is truest on the mini pair. This yarn is really soft and thin. The socks are super warm. but I'm not sure how well the Malabrigo sock will wear as socks - it might be better suited to stoles. For the record - the socks actually fit me. I was just in a huge hurry to get 5 or 6 pairs of socks on and off, cook dinner and get everyone fed before we had to get the Princess on a flight and she was snap happy!


  1. Very nice. :-) I tried that pattern and ran into the same problem of not having my floats loose enough.

  2. Pretty! We're watching THE Thanksgiving Parade at the moment. Is the NYC Macy's Parade popular on the west coast?

  3. I came down with a cold yesterday, so I've been snoozing on the couch while Rob watches the parade. I woke up for the dog show, but when the PWD didn't place, I decided to check the blog world. Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Oh, I like those! Heading over to Rav to check out that pattern.

    Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.
