I finished my first Elegance sock a few days ago. Sadly I didn't make the deadline, even for that one sock. I really loved the pattern. The cable is gorgeous and very simple to do. I had to increase stitches on the back of the leg so that they would fit my mom, so now I have a wide purl channel at the top of the leg. It looks neat that way.
I used Lime & Violet Sasquatch yarn in Tinker.
I also cast on for the Ripples Socks. I have knit part of a foot so far.
I think that the yarn I used (Hand Jive Nature's Palette in Mallard Green) is thicker than what I usually use because 66 stitches, which usually fits me just fine was coming out really big. I ended deciding to make these for a friend whose feet are the perfect size for them. I'll try to get at least one sock done by the end of the month.
