Loopy Academy Socks

My second Loopy Academy project is a pair of socks.  This is my first sock using the Shotgun Shuts His Cake Hole sock pattern, and it's knit toe up*.  It's knit in Malabrigo Sock in Indiecita.  They look very skinny right now because of the twisted ribbing.  Once I put them on my foot they look totally normal.  (I had to check for myself a couple of times.)  I'll definitely be putting these on the sock blockers before their official Loopy Academy shot!

The two remaining knitting assignments are:  to knit a pair of socks in either top down or bottom up (whichever you're least familiar with), and to knit something with twisted stitches.  I'm comfortable with either top down or toe up socks, so for my sock assignment I can do whatever direction I want.  This pattern also has twisted stitches in it.  So basically, these socks could count towards either assignment.  I'm planning another pair of socks for my third project but I haven't settled on a pattern yet, so I'll probably wait and turn them both in together, once I know what the other pair of socks will be.  It's nice to have options!

* Just in case you're curious about what happened to the first part of the quote, the designer also did Driver Picks the Music, which looks identical, but is knit top down.

Wow, you're going super fast! I finished one sock and I've cast on my two color project but I'm not nearly as far along. And the twisted stitches (a hat) is... well, the yarn is wound. That counts, right?
