Accomplishment, Gusset/Time Warp Continuum & A New Product

I finally accomplished something this week. 2 first socks done. And second socks cast on. This has felt like the longest week, but at least I have something to show for it. I have been loving knitting the Denmarks but the Sixth Sense sock is still a bummer to knit. I think it's the ktbl stitches that are throwing off my rhythm in this pattern. But 1 down, 1 to go...

But these 3 seem to be stuck in some kind of gusset/time warp continuum thingy. They are at the exact same place in sock construction and will remain there for a while longer. For 2 of them that is alright (they aren't part of any KAL, they are simply for my pleasure) but the Fishermen's Sock will be worked on soon.

Time for show and tell. I found this new product (to me anyway) at my local Kroger store this week. Can I just tell you, these were so made for sock knitting. They have 3 sections on 1 bag. I have my ball of yarn and the SIP in the big/back section, the pattern in the middle section, and a cable needle in the front/little section. My daughter loves them because they come with stickers so you can dress Joey the kangaroo. Nice to know that at 16 she's not too grown up yet.

I also joined the Amazing Lace KAL for the summer. I think I've decided on knitting a lace stole and some lace socks (of course). Now I need to decide on the yarn and color. Happy knitting!! I'm off to work on some socks.

Those two first socks look great. I love the colours of yarn for both of them.

The bags are neat. I've never seen them like that (the 3 compartments). I don't even think they have that brand here...

I've joined the Amazing Lace too, but I haven't decided what to make yet. Maybe socks, maybe Reid (if they ever get the corrections posted), maybe a shawl...

Way to go Karen,
I finished the first Six Sox sock this afternoon too amd the Koigu I was working on and cast on for it's mate and am to the toe decreases on the second Austermann Step sock. I will have to look at our Kroger to see if they have the kangaroo bags.
I haven't touched the lace knitting today.
Your socks look great as usual
