WIP Wed + SpringTastic Socks Pattern Sale!

Guess what? This week, the Spring-tastic Socks pattern is on sale for half off! Spring is kindasortanotreally here in Chicago, but maybe casting on for a pair of spring-y ankle socks can convince mother nature to get with the program. It's worth a shot, right?
The Holla Knits KAL ends on April 29th, so if you are a quick little sock knitter, you can still join in the fun and be eligible for some awesome prizes (click here to check out more details on Ravelry). And even if you can't finish by the end of the KAL, you'll still have some great socks to wear this season, so it's win-win.

I'm apparently all about knitting socks this spring, as I now have two different pairs on the needles. The first are Tyler's Royals socks, which have a stripe for each game in the 2015 season. I've made a lot of progress since last week:
I also started a pair of socks with last month's Fiberista Club shipment, a custom-milled & dyed BFL sock yarn in highlighter green (or, as I prefer to think of it - light saber green). I just finished the cuff and will be doing a simple knit & purl arrow pattern for the leg:
I also started another hat - this one is out of handspun yarn and is for the KAL that was just announced last Friday on the Knitter's Pride blog (details here - there are prizes!). The pattern is a new one from Angela Tong, the Hishigata Hat, and there is a coupon code for the pattern purchase for KAL participants (see previous link).
I also have a secret project on the needles - obviously, I can't share too many of the details, but it is using some handspun yarn and I expect it to knit up pretty quickly since I'm using US 10 Marblz needles:
And that's it for this week!
