The first Hornet sock for the KAL showing the first set of 27 stitches.  I need to knit another set and then the first 17 rounds once again before beginning the heel flap.

The first Blue Moon sock with the leg portion finished. I'm ready to begin knitting the heel flap.
I did not like how this was turning out so I frogged it.  I've been collecting patterns that work well with stripped yarn and will use one of them with this yarn.
