I finished my June STR Club socks!
Began: July 30th
Finished: August 19th
Needles: #1s (2.5mm) Mostly 2 circular, with some magic loop, on one pair knitpicks, one pair short Addi's, and one pair longer Addis (both longer cord and longer needles)- I was expirimenting!
Pattern: Toe-up version of the Solstice Slip pattern. The only variation was 8 rows of 3/2 ribbing at the top of the socks and then a crochet bind-off.

I thought this pattern was a bit busy at first, but now I really like them. I'm grooving on the garter-stich toe and heel (also recently done with the February STR Monsoon Inside-Out socks).

I'm looking forward to the August shipment: Shouldn't that be coming soon?

Your Solstice Slips look great! And just in time for the August shipment. BMFA shipped internationals last week, so I assume domestics will ship this week.
