WIP Wednesday: Keep On Keepin' On

Alert the media: my chevron yak socks finally resemble something you could put a foot into! I grafted everything together on Monday, and it's a nice, snug fit. Now I just need to knit the cuff and toe, although I think I will make the second sock first.
I also made some major progress on my Craftsy class project, the Faux Fair Isle mittens - look, I'm on constrast color #3!:
What helped is blowing up the colorwork chart about 200%, since I always have a problem with how small most colorwork charts are. It's amazing to me how much faster I can work when I'm not squinting at impossibly tiny squares.

I also have a new project, which is this month's FreshStitches kit club! Hopefully this doesn't spoil the surprise if your kit hasn't arrived yet...especially since I just found out that this month's kit is a pattern exclusive!
Last but not least, I replenished my miniskein grab bags in my Etsy shop earlier this week and added a ready-made crocheted basket, too! I plan on adding many more crocheted baskets to my shop in the weeks and months to come as a way of using up the oddballs in my stash, so each one will be totally and completely unique!
