Holy Mismatch, Batman!
Calm yourself, Robin. I'm working on two pairs of socks at once, albeit in different locations. The brown cabled sock (KnitPicks Risata in colorway Cocoa, 42% Cotton, 39% Superwash Merino Wool, 13% Polyamide, 6% Elite Elastic) is my current Bus Socks (on the heel of #2), and the black tweedy sock (KnitPicks Stroll Tweed in colorway Black, 65% Superwash Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, 10% Donegal) is what I knitted up during our drive to and from Fort Knox. I almost finished the first tweed sock on that trip! Now the second sock is getting knitted on at home.
I'm loving how the Risata yarn hugs my leg, ever so gently. It's the elastic that's doing it, plus the cable pattern helps, too. The Stroll Tweed isn't as huggy, but it makes up for it by being so so soft.
