I caved and started a new sock

I've been plugging along determinedly on my existing projects, but Friday I couldn't resist, so I wound up some Lorna's Laces (wild berries) and cast on a project I found on Ravelry, a sock with slipped stitches that the author said was good for breaking up weird flashing and pooling, a characteristic I've found Lorna's Laces to have in abundance. We'll see how these turn out once I get a few more inches in.

I'm enjoying this knit so far and it's making me think it's time to take up the Cat Bordhi socks I put down a few months ago, because the slipped stitch patterns are reminiscent of one another.
The weather warmed up enough to allow snow to fall - now my back yard is covered again. I'm glad we hung the finch feeder up yesterday. No finches yet.
The cats continue their efforts to find the Warmest Spot In The House For A Nap. Here's Angus, curled up on his favorite woolly item - an afghan the Fool's grandmother crocheted long ago. I think we'll keep him.

Awww, cute kitties. What's the pattern? Is it shimmer from magknits?
