Tour de Sock update

I'm 167th out of 244 on the leaderboard. It's nowhere near what I did last year. There are many more players this year and I suspect a bunch of the new people are Finns. I can't believe how fast those people can knit! I did finish the first two socks.

Round 3 starts tomorrow night. I've got a sneaking suspicion that it'll be argyle. Or as those of us dreading it, arrrrrgh-gyle.

I'm caught up on both of my Mocks and am past the 75% mark on my Fruity Oaty Scarf. I'm waiting for new yarn to come from Biscotte & Cie before I restart the Little Flowers socks. That watermelon yarn needs to be used for something designed to be stripey.

Watermelon yarn! The color stripes look like slices of watermelon. There's a dark green stripe, lighter green, pale pink, dark pink. The dark pink has little spots of brownish/black on it that come up looking like seeds. Biscotte & Cie has two versions of it and I recently splurged on the second one. Very fun, especially for plain socks.
