Leyburn Socks

My first inclination upon finishing these socks was to burn them. They were trouble, every step of the way. And when I put them on to take pictures, the second one was much too tight, probably because I was in such a hurry to finish that I didn't stretch my floats properly. Hopefully it will stretch with wear, or I can just block it.

Pattern: Leyburn Socks by MintyFresh (free Ravelry download)
Yarn: Madelinetosh Tosh Sock
Needle: Addi Turbo size 0

So I will never make these again as this pattern is from Satan, but they are cute, no? I love the yarn, too. I think Madelinetosh is my new favorite sock yarn. It's expensive so it's not an everyday sock yarn, but if you want to give yourself a lovely gift, it's perfect. This project took me three months, which is a pretty long time, but now it is over and I can move on with my life.

I think they are beautiful! I hope they will not drive you bonkers from the uneven feeling.
