How I spent my Day Off

That, my friends, is the entire leg of my Very First Sock (not counting the toe I knit about a year ago in the toe-up STR penis pattern. A toe is not a sock, and that one was ripped out right-quick, never reaching sock status).
In case you've been living under a rock, the pattern is Knitty's Monkey, and this is Lorna's Laces Super Sock in amethyst stripe - knit on US size 1 dpns.
Please forgive the mediocre photography. I couldn't wait to show you!

Yesterday's conversation:
TD: what's that you're knitting there?
me: a sock
TD: huh. Well, you have enough scarves. You don't have too many socks.
me: yes, that was sort of the idea. I'll ask that you hold your applause until after I have successfully turned the heel.
