In the meantime, I've successfully restarted the second yellow CoBaSi sock! AND! I started another pair of socks - using beautiful Koigu wool, and this time I'm getting fancy: I'm using a simple herringbone lace pattern on the leg - and it turns out it's not as hard doing lace as I thought.
I'm very pleased with how it's going. I even kinda overdid it last night - both hands are sore today, so I'm leaving them sit tonight.
And that's about as exciting as it gets around here.
