I've cast on the Lily of the Valley socks by Susan Lawrence, for the first of potentially two pair I'm doing for the March Sockdown challenge. I'm using Knitpicks Essential sock yarn in the Dusk colorway. Yes, I know it's Stroll sock yarn now, but this yarn was part of my very first Knitpicks purchase, and has been hanging around a while, so I'm calling it by its label name.
So far, I've already cheated by very quickly abandoning the horizontal braid edging to the cuff, because, well, because I'm lazy. I'm liking a purl row there instead just fine.
I finished sleeve #1 of the Cabled Swing Cardi the day before yesterday. It's coming along quite nicely.
