Holiday Kal: Socks Progress

I finally got my hands on some Panda Silk! I wonder if it would work for Adrienne's "Lotus". But I am working on 3 pairs of socks right now and I don't think I'll be able to finish a 4th pair before the deadline for this KAL. :-(

You guys have seem my Thuja before, done in Knit Picks Swish Worsted.

I've undone the grafting since then because I think it is a bit too big for the recipient and want to do a fitting in case I have to rip back. The second one is a few rows from the toe.

Next - The Miss Marple mystery socks from Sock Knitters Anonymous. They are my first mosaic pattern ever and they are coming out fabulous. I am using Knit Picks Stroll sock yarn for these. This picture is clue one, but I am about 2/3rds through clue 2 right now and I'll add that picture here when I'm done with it.

And last and probably least, the Goddess Knits mystery socks for November. This first clue was completely boring because it was only a simple ribbed cuff. I'm hoping the rest of the pattern is a bit more complex. I also don't know if I like the recommended yarn, which is Farmhouse Silk Blend. It looks pretty, but feels really rough on my hands. I hope it softens up with a soak.

lotus would be wonderful in panda silk. of course, if you want to wait for 50 socks/50 states, bling is knit with panda silk.

What state is Bling? It would be sacrilege for me to not knit PA first!

Looks like PA is meant for a man. I think I shall PH-Balance it for a woman though, because I don't think the men in my life appreciate socks enough for me to put forth the effort into making them any. XD
