Craftsy 2016 Sock Knit-Along - Day 3

So it is now the third day of the knit-along. Yesterday's work was slow going as the pattern made it a bit difficult to work, I had to switch back and forth between knitting a row and purling a row which is not as easy as I thought, and there is a small ribbed section in the center of them.

Today's work will be even slower as there is this weird technique I have to do called a DW2 (double wrap two stitches) and requires me to move two stitches back and forth several times as I wrap them. It's a really pretty design but wow it is tedious. Here is an image from the class of the finished sock, see the little bumpy designs? That is the DW2, very interesting texture.
