Bad Blogger and Sock Progress

Yes, I've been a bad blogger. It's been more than two weeks since my last post. I wrote a great big catch-up post on Monday, but never got around to posting it and now it seems out dated. So rather than do a big post, I will do a bunch of little posts over the weekend to catch up.

First up...socks.

This picture is from a little over a week ago.
Mismatched Pair

The purple one on the right is the first Hedera sock. I am using Socks That Rock lightweight in the Tanzanite colorway.

The pink/burgundy one on the left is also a first sock. It is the Spiralling Sock pattern from the Sockamania Club Knit Along. I am using Fly Supersport in the Ruby Redmond colorway for this one. Since this yarn works up quick, I'm concentrating all of my knitting efforts on this pair. I need to get a pair done before the end of the month for the Sock A Month KAL 4. The second Spiralling sock is now past the halfway point, but I'm starting to get concerned about having enough yarn. I weighed the first sock and the remaining yarn before starting the second sock and weight wise everything looked good. But that remaining ball of yarn is looking very small to me. If the yarn holds out, I hope to have this pair finished before the weekend is over.
