I'm so excited to have these socks completed. They were my first toe up and also first short row heel (don't look too closely). Part of the Leyburn KnitALong in the Socks that Rawk group on Ravelry, I chose Fred Flintstone as my colourway. It's not a colourway I'd usually choose - way bright. But I'm so glad I branched out.
Orange, red and yellow.
I love blue, although it doesn't appear too often in my life (wardrobe or home). I love green - that features heavily in my home decor (sofas, accents) and a little more in my wardrobe. Although, if you looked at my wardrobe, you'd insist my favourite colour is black - maybe it should be, it's very slimming ;0)
When my boys ask me what my favourite colours are, I always say blue and orange. Orange is just so lively and cheerful, I love it.
Having said all that, I've chosen Stormy Weather as my colour for the next KAL - Shur'tagal.

Anyway, back to the Leyburns. They fit like a dream. So snug. The only change I made to the pattern was to change down a needle size for the leg. They sure do look baggy, but they fit so nicely. I wore them the very next day after finishing them.
Happy weekend :0)

I love those colors too. Socks are great for exploring colors you wouldn't normally wear. I bet they look great on you!
