This is the start of my new socks, using the Araucania Ranco Multy yarn. The pictures in natural light are washing the colors out and the ones with a flash are way to white. Oh well... just imagine this yarn a little more saturated and you'll get the true color.
I decided not to make Tempest and am going with Slippery Socks instead. I think it suits the colorway better. Those slipped stitches are really popping and I'm loving where there are color changes and you can really see them. I showed the best side in the picture (purplish background and turquoisey-cream slipped stitches. These socks are for me, for my birthday (in May). I'm trying to get an early start on everything since I have a lot of gift knitting to do this year (not just for Christmas, but also birthdays, Mothers/Fathers Day, etc.). Now, the question will be if I can hold off on wearing these until my birthday! I don't think so, but will be sure to wear them then.
Next few things up on the queue are: finish the bias garter stitch scarf (getting there!), a knitted ornament for Shawn (Christmas), Pomatomus Socks (me, graduation gift), a few crocheted balls for Arthur's dog (Fifa), a slouchy beret for Michelle (Christmas), finish the Scrappy rug, and, of course, more hats for charity. These things I hope to be finished with by the end of February.
