In the land of sock knitting this week we have the start of the first of the Slip Up Socks for Tony's sisters 30th birthday in mid-November. It is in Lorna's Laces Purple Club, which Tony chose from my ridiculously large sock yarn stash. The ribbing makes it really stretchy, but quite hard to photograph. I'm not that convinced I like it, I think it is because you see so much of the purl side. I've just started on the heel, which I like a lot more, being stocking stitch. I'm sure it will be fine.
