WIP Wednesday: New, New, NEW!

After a month of project monogamy during October, I was pretty excited to start some new projects! I started with a pair of colorwork socks, which are a new design that I'm hoping will be out before the end of this year. Therefore, I can't show you too much of it, but here is a little sneak peek - it's being knit in Baah La Jolla Tequila Lime (my favorite!) and Night Sky.
Today I am casting on for a Mystery KAL that's happening in the Bijou Basin Ranch group. Though MKALs aren't really my thing these days, I am excited about this one because it's going to have lots of options so you can customize your cowl throughout the KAL. Another bonus it that's short and sweet - there are only three weeks of clues, so it should be fairly easy to be finished before Thanksgiving! I'll be knitting mine with a skein of Bijou Bliss in Steel.
Last night I finally started my first-ever crocheted socks, Spooktacular from the Rohn Strong Holiday Sock Club. It took a while to do the foundation crochet, but once I watched this video and then re-read the instructions, I started to get the hang of it! I didn't get too far along, but it's a good start. I'm using Sincere Sheep Tenacious Sock in Vit. C; since I don't have two skeins on hand, I'm thinking I'll use some contrasting brown sock yarn to make contrasting heels and toes.
Incidentally, I have a VERY special surprise for my dear readers this Friday...I can't wait to share it with you...but you'll just have to meet me back here to find out what it is!
