Last Monday when I quarantined my current knitting projects I decided to finally cast on the Leyburn socks I had been wanting to make. I figured they would tide me over while the problem with my current WIPs was sorted out. I thought it would take me a couple weeks and would give me something to knit on during my current business trip. Little did I know that these socks knit up lickity split fast. The first sock was done in about 4 days. I cast on for the second sock at the airport on Saturday. I knit on it until I finally passed out on the airplane. At that point I had already begun the leg.
