17/366: Worsted Weight Sock In Progress, SOOC

I'm trying to take my mind off worrying about my boy kitten at the vet. He's fine. The house is echoingly empty without him.

 

So, here's my first-ever worsted weight sock in progress. (This is a big easier than my usual "toothpick" size needles and fine-weight yarn for socks.)

 

The gold ribbing is a hand-dyed wool yarn bought from Lambsears.etsy.com. The red leg is a commercial wool yarn. I've got to get ahold of some reinforcing thread for the heel. That stuff is nearly impossible to find these days.
