Of Cast-on-itis and a sock

Since Eid, I have been adding up new projects to my queue and casting on a few. I have started a cardigan, a shawl and a pair of socks. As is the case with working on many projects at a time, I have little to show in the way of progress, except for a finished sock:

The pattern is Cubist Socks. I am enjoying knitting it, despite the fact that I had to rip have a sock and re-knit the sock leg in one needle size larger. The original might have worked but the pattern has little give (as mentioned in the pattern)and stretched, the cubes bulge in odd ways. With the larger needles, that problem went away and I switched back to the smaller size beyond the heel. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Hand-painted (Make Believe colorway).
