Years ago, I purchased two skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Chocolate and Devon to knit a pair of socks with contrasting cuffs, heels, and toes. I took the yarn home, wound it into balls, and it sat in my project box waiting to be cast on.
During my annual New Year's Day stash overhaul, I found the two little cakes in the bottom of my cedar chest and decided that this was the year that these socks would materialize. They're the perfect project for social knitting - a plain vanilla sock with a little bit of interest - and I'm very happy with how they're turning out. The last few weeks they've been on the back burner as I complete a couple of test knits but I'm eager to get back to them and finally have these socks on my feet rather in than in my stash.
