Every time I did the laundry this winter the worsted socks I knitted in previous years kept reminding me that I could always use more socks to wear to work. I love those socks. They're bright and I only ever knit one so I don't suffer "second sock syndrome" so I only need make one, that way I have yarn left for other things too. When I went through my stash last month this skein of Plymouth Encore floated to the top and on Tuesday my resistance broke and I cast on. It was the perfect project to have tucked into my purse for waiting room knitting that day. I like the dark gray stripe that's spiraling around the sock with the speckles between.
I'm liking the way that the Red Gold Cowl is working up, although I do wish I'd have started the mistake rib sooner but I'm guessing it'll all work out in the end. Plus I can go back to standard rib when I get toward the end to balance it out.
