The fruits of my labors

Knitpicks came! You can go see the fruits of my labors at the shop. Alison was kind enough to mention my 10% off deal for Sockapaloooza participants, so I'll offer it here, too. 10% off on any sock yarn to Sockapaloooza sock knitters, even if the yarn's just for you!

And now, the promised progress pics.

I'm finding that the directions for this pattern are not quite accurate. The sleeve length, in particular, is problematic. But I persevere.
