finishing up Scylla Socks

Maybe a half dozen rows left to finish the heel flap, then the leg and the cuff. These Scylla socks are just flying off the needles! At this rate the second sock may be finished on my train trip home tonight. Just as well really, as I'm getting heartily sick of this colourway - too much yellow/orange/brown for me!

Add to that my urge to cast on for Street Knit. A bit of startitis maybe? I skimmed through the Ravelry database for patterns yesterday and determined that flip top mittens would be the most practical. My first pair will be these Broad Street Mittens from Knitty. They aren't what I planned yesterday - they're from sock weight yarn instead of the worsted I planned to use - but these look so very practical that I want to try them first. And there's really no danger of running out of sock yarn, is there?!
