Well, as usual for me, my knitting goals were a bit too ambitious.
I was knitting up these socks for The Purple Purl's Can-Con Sock Along. But, deadline is today (July 31, 2017), and, alas, I haven't even finished knitting one sock.

For this sock, I'm actually working from a single ball, so I'm curious how this is going to turn out too, since the colour changes won't be identical for each sock. They'll be a fraternal pair, rather then an identical pair, of socks.
And, you can see, I've gotten a new set of stitch markers since then too:
Efficient Sense, well, that package definitely qualified as happy mail! Her Silver Feather Stitch Markers are light enough to not drag down my knitting, but big enough that I can't accidentally knit past them! (No, seriously, if you're looking for locking stitch markers, her shop is amazing!)
Anyway, even though I didn't finish these for the Sock-Along, I am going to try and finish them for the end of August. So, stay tuned to this space for more on this pattern!
