Waiting for spring

No sailing yet... We are still waiting for more decent weather...
My second 12x12 community quilt is finished. Here's a little preview...
Actually, this was my first idea, but I lost interest once the top was done, and it had to stay on the WIP stack for a little while. I still like the other one better.
On the knitting front, here's my first sock! I like it a lot.
The yarn is Preface by Phildar. My DH has already placed an order, but he would prefer some more low-key yarn... I wonder why...

Can't wait to see both of your community quilts. And love the colors in that yarn. Hard to believe that one yarn can have all that color and pattern.

Fantastic sock, you did that one really quickly!! I'm not surprised your DH wants a pair, I think he's a bit unadventurous re colour though LOL
And the glimps of your 12x12 is very tantalising, looking forward to seeing the whole thing.

I don't know why your DH wants different colors these are luscious, but I am wondering also are all those colors in one yarn?
