This is my first sock (though I am already scheming for the next few pairs), attempted in honor of this knit-along. I started about a week ago- basic, no pattern, 2.25mm needles. I love the color of the yarn, which seemed fairly unique when I finally spotted it. It's Trekking pro natura in a forest green/charcoal with pumpkin orange for October. Another first for me will be trying to knit while camping, as I am going to Madeline Island (and thereby, the Bayfield Apple Fest) this weekend.
Enjoy your knitting wherever you take it, or wherever it takes you.
