Continuing to catch the wind!

I was able to make some more progress on C@HRH over my long weekend and here is where the block stands as of this afternoon.  If I have the energy, I'm going to try and get the green fill done on the last sail but I'm leaning towards just vegging so we'll see.

I also started a new pair of socks to keep my momentum going.  These are called Escher Socks and they are found in the book "Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn".  There is a cable row every 6th repeat that changes directions and I'm finding it a bit fiddly. 

I think part of my issue is that the needles are not 5" dpns and the extra length makes it hard to maneuver the stitches without losing the stitch/dropping the cable needle/getting the yarn in the right position.  But it's a really gorgeous yarn and I think they will be pretty once they are done.
