Knitters Without Borders Sock

I started a new sock with some Socks that Rock, in the Knitters without Borders colorway I got a few years back at MD Sheep & Wool.
Since STR is thicker than the average sock yarn, for once I don't have to work with 00 needles to get the gauge and drape I like. Just regular old size 0!

I spun some wool on the new-to-me Schact spindle. I love the color name: Gamma Ray.

A Side of Kimono

I'm almost done with the pink and green sock, but I'm also working on this baby cotton kimono. It was supposed to be the baby kimono from the Mason Dixon Knitting, but I couldn't find my copy in all my clutter, so I just improvised. I'll need to add some length to both the sleeves and the body. I'm thinking of doing so with a bit of Tunisian crochet after seaming.
