One pre-KAL activity was a yarn swap. I was paired with Mel (@dubaimel on Instagram), who sent me this huge and wonderful parcel of goodies. There was a sock blank and some Crazy Zauberball in the parcel, so I have decided to knit up the sock blank as part of the KAL. The parcel only arrived this morning, yet I have already unravelled the blank, skeined it and given it a good soak to get the worst of the kinks out. I'm not sure it'll be ready to cast on tomorrow morning, but maybe by the end of the day I'll be lucky.

I have two other pairs of socks lined up for the KAL (as well as finishing a couple of pairs that are already in progress): simple striped socks with my first ever Fish Lips Kiss heel in self-striping yarn from Unbelievawool; and bright green Eidothea socks using Artesano Definition Sock Yarn in Mushy Peas.
