Mystery Sock KAL

I'm really loving the Through the Loops Mystery Sock Knit Along. This is a first for me. It's my first KAL, and I started with a mystery. I love getting a new clue each Wednesday, and wondering where Kirsten is going to take us. She has offered an easy pattern and a more difficult pattern. I (maybe not so wisely) chose the advanced pattern thinking I was up for the challenge. It was a rough start on the cable portion, but I got used to the pattern, and I think the second sock will go much smoother. I'm sure there are some SSK that should be K2tog, but I can't find them!

I'm using Classic Elite Summer Sox yarn in a color called pelican and size 2 double pointed needles. I cast on 64 stitches. I'm having so much fun with it. My goal is to knit two socks at once, so that at the end of October I will have a finished pair! I only have the cuff done on the second sock, so I have some catching up to do.

It looks beautiful. The color is so denim-y; so great! Since I never did get started on this KAL, I am going to use your sock yarn to make Paraphernalia. I think they are really pretty and simple - my kind of sock.
