Loopy Academy, Knitting Version, Project Three

Essential to perfection sock 
The parade of finished projects stops today!  This is the start of my third project for this semester's Loopy Academy, Knitting Edition:  Twisted Stitches.  This project is also a sock.  This is Essential to Perfection (it's part of an ebook based on quotes from vintage etiquette guides), and I'm knitting them in Fable Fibers Story in Ruby.  It's a more involved sock than I've done in a while, but it's moving along nicely.

When I ordered this yarn, I think I was planning a scarf or shawl because I don't usually knit socks from Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blends.  In between ordering and casting on, I decided to make these socks.  I almost un-decided against socks when I wound the yarn and realized there was cashmere in it, but my swift and winder are in the sewing room and I have another couple of pajama pants waiting for me to sew sitting right there.  This yarn happens to match the Christmas pajamas I'm making (soon), so those pajamas will have matching socks!

Also, doesn't Logan's meaty drumstick make a lovely backdrop?

Just curious: why don't you use MCN for socks? I love a little cashmere in my socks!
