Goody Goody Leyburns

I was hoping to finish these before January was out. But there were many errands to run on Saturday and finishing was just too low on the list. Yesterday, I went to Lauren's book signing and then home to watch the game. (More on the signing later this week.) At about 8pm last night, I cast off on the second sock. Nothing like a KAL to make me productive!

Goody Goody Leyburns- Done

Pattern: Leyburn Socks by the brilliant Minty
Yarn: STR Lightweight in Goody, Goody
Needles: KP options, circular, size 2.5mm, magic loop
Date Started: January 13, 2009
Date Finished: February 1, 2009
Mods: I cast on 60 stitches and carried that same number through the whole sock. They are a little tight to get on. But once they are on, they are so comfy!

There are lots of other (non-knitting) projects going on around here at the moment. Some of these are making me very nervous. (For the record, I'm not pregnant!) Anyway, blogging and commenting may be sparse this week. We'll see. But if all goes well, there may be big news soon.

Your leyburns actually make me want to knit that Goody Goody yarn - they are SO beautiful!
Could the new project be a house? :)

Ooh, those are pretty. Why are you tempting me to start knitting socks?

Good luck with whatever your big news may be.

Your Leyburns are so pretty!! I've never gotten my hands on any STR. Your socks have got me thinking I need to rectify that.
And non-knitting projects ....mmm.. here's to all going well!

Great job on the Leyburns! And I'm sure whatever the big non-knitting projects are, they'll turn out fabulously. :)

I love how they turned out in the Goody-Goody. It's definitely food for thought. I had thought it was going to end up a baby surprise jacket, but I love your Leyburns!

Those are pretty, it's neat how different Goody Goody looks knitted up. I need to start mines, I've been so back logged with other projects.
What short toe did you use? I was going thru the pattern and Minty just says to use your fave short toe.

Great pair of socks. What kind of bind off do they use? EZ sewing BO?

I love that you know the (knitting) blogverse so well you pre-empted any overexcited assumptions about your 'big news'. :) Whatever it is, I hope it's making you excited as well as nervous.

I also really love the name of your socks. It reminds me of 'Good goody gumdrops' - and they're certainly pretty enough to be worn by a goody two-shoes!
