I cast on this morning, and ended up watching a movie this evening instead of finishing my paper like I was supposed to. So here is my progress on socks out of Knitpicks' Parade. I've just started the heel flap; half a sock a day isn't bad at all.
The base color of the yarn is more natural than white, which I didn't quite expect. But it's not bad. I like the stripes.
And no, I didn't work on that Gossamer thingy today. Sarah, you were right. It's a pain in the butt.
