Ginkgo Crescent pattern, but modifying the increases at the beginning, since the reviews (and even the pattern itself) say that the beginning as written creates a "hump" that has to be blocked out aggressively - basically, it's not actually crescent shaped. I'm using some of the increase scheme from the Seaflower Shawl pattern, but mostly just winging it.
I worked on it in CMS and Colloquium on Thursday - next Thursday is the last one of the semester, so I'll see how far I get!

Also, the toe instructions are kind of confusing and maybe not entirely right. The way there is a purl column (but only one stitch wide) in between the decreases on the patterned side of the foot is a bit weird.
All in all though, a success! I think I will enjoy wearing these socks.
pattern: Deflect socks from Knitty
yarn: Fibranatura Yummy, 100% superwash wool

I am really happy with the way this turned out, and it was super fun to team sew/quilt it with Carolyn! I hope Natalie and Bill enjoy it!
