Socktober, Baby!

I'll spare you the details of my month-long absence. They seem to be frequent in these parts. I just have to get back into the habit of blogging. And summer, too. I blame summer. Anyway, it's Socktober, baby!

I have two pairs of socks on the needles - well, one actually on the needles and half ball of yarn awaiting cast on to fulfill its destiny of second sock. You've already seen one (wow, did I really start these so long ago?). The other?

As soon as this beauty came in the mail, I knew it was meant to become some of Pam at Flint Knits Marigold Socks.

I cast on for these socks on a big, smelly Greyhound bus headed for NYC, where I picked up a cruise ship and sailed around the Caribbean for 10 days. The sock was my constant poolside companion and hit the spot for some interesting, yet not exhausting knitting. But, since I've been home it's been abandonded for some sweater WIP's (namely, Cherry). Hey, they're bigger and more noticeable sitting there wanting to be finished and worn.

Me and the Marigolds have since rekindled our love and I'm *almost* finished with the first one. I pledge to at least finish this sock (and maybe the other embossed leaves) by the end of the month. Nothing like Socktoberfest to give you a good kick in the pants, huh?
