Leannán means sweetheart or darling in Scottish/Irish Gaelic, which I found to be the perfect description for these socks. The slipped and cabled stitches look like hearts. I love how the variation in the yarn really shows with the slipped stitches.

Makes these for your friends, your family, your lover, your Leannán. Pick a yarn you love for the person you love and create the simple socks yet beautiful socks. Leannán is a six row repeat that is very easy to memorize and can be done without the cable needle if you are comfortable. I hope your sweetheart loves them!
