Well, Numero Uno, before the list starts: Garter stitch in the round sucks. Hard. But I went ahead and cast on for the partner to the Welt Fantastic sock. Love the pattern, hate the garter stitch cuff.
I'm also making progress on the fall-colored socks with the Garter Rib pattern. I've turned the heel and am ready to start the leg pattern. It's so easy to remember, it's perfect Metro/waiting room knitting. So I don't feel as under much pressure with it. I think I'll be able to finish it by the end of the month for my KAL.
