Must Finish These Socks

I need to get these done by the end of the month because I want to do the "January 2007 Challenge" in the Vintage Sock KAL!

I'm sneaking sock time in between mittens (I believe I am in mitten burnout). Only 2 more simple quick mittens to go and then I'm on to some scarves, shawls, sweaters and hats! I have a skein of Mountain Colors Weavers Wool burning a hole in my stash that wants to be a Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl . Some Noro Silk that I think wants to be Argosy and some kid mohair that may want to be Lucy Neatby's Cloud Scarf . Also need to finish my neck down cardigan and plan my next project for the Stranded Colorwork KAL - probably from Hats On by Charlene Schurch.. Oh and I'm making a tiny Christmas quilt that should be ready for a picture by next post.
I better get back to those socks....

*** I realize after reading the comments to this post that it has been a long time since I first posted the specifics to the Austrian Diamond Socks.They were designed by Candace Eisner Strick and can be found in Knitters Fall 2006 issue - it is a beautiful and well written/charted pattern. Here is that original post with a picture of the chart.
