First Leyburn sock finished

Tonight I finished the first of my pair. I'm using Panda Cotton in the Muir Woods colorway. I love these socks. They fit so well! I did do a bunch of modification to the sizing, though, including increases in the sole, and going down a needle size partway up the leg.

Getting started on the Leyburns

I really like this new Bamboo yarn - it's very soft and silky - this is the first time that I've used it. I'm using two strands held together. I've started the Leyburn...

I'm just up to the heel...

I like the pattern - it was quite easy to memorize.
