While I went through my yarn contico (trunk) looking for something to start, I happened upon a ziploc bag with one Rainbow Monkey sock and a full ball of yarn. I didn't remember when I started them or why I didn't kitchner Sock 1 closed, but here they were with my size 1 circular needles.
After a quick grafting session with Sock 1, I cast on for Sock 2 on Saturday morning. Right now, Sunday night, I'm almost to the heel flap -- I think they were just what I was looking for. :)
