seven fo's and one random oddball

The Ravellenics have ended.
I finished four *wips and knit three hats.
I entered five wips but never got to that fifth one.
It's getting entered later today in the 'close but no cigar loser thread' (that's not really the name of it but that's what I'm going to call it)

So in no particular order we'll break it down.

Watermelon Socks
Seriously I started them in 2010.
Finished the first one in November 2013
Guess what happens when you wait this long to finish a pair of socks
your gauge gets about as f'd up as you can imagine but I said a couple bad words and slapped them on my feet.
Yarn by Abi Grasso on Etsy ArtYarnsbyAbi is her shop name
all you have to do is message her what you want and she's super wonderful!
needle size: 1

Now for something random
I bought this yarn at Madrona
I've admired this colorway for years on the website
it's called Foxglove.
I love Foxgloves.
I'm not loving this.
I'm on my second restart with the socks.
what to do what to do what to do...
I'm open to suggestions.

*work in progress
