Another Pair of Socks; Slow Knitting Progress; Another Prize!

My July socks for the YOSSRATS201 KAL are finished.  That and another Vivid blanket square are the only completed knitting for the month.  Here's a couple pictures of the finished socks.

I won another prize from another group I had spun along with during Tour de Fleece.  It's eight ounces of a Merino cross fiber in a pretty taupe/lilac color.  Of course I had dear hubby pick me up another quick pick ticket.  lol  You never know how long the good luck will last.  :)

Now the Tour  is finished, I'm hoping to get a few more projects off the needles for Stash Dash.  I'm at 4408 meters right now and know my August socks and another square should push me over the 5K level.  I would love to make it to the 7K but don't see that happening since Stash Dash ends August 21st. 

Here's a picture of the yarns I plan to use for two pairs of August socks. Plans are Lamby Toes "Mix Ins"  for "Fine and Dandy" socks (the whole sock in this yarn), and Cascade Heritage Prints "Cotton Candy" for a vanilla pair.

I did start my Big Island Wrapper, but, had to order more yarn for it. There have been several notations regarding running out of yarn in each color.  The designer must be a very tight knitter.  I plan to make it a little bigger if I have a lot left over at the transition points.  Here's a pic of the first part in progress.
