Laura is knitting a pair of toe up socks (heel to be determined) out of Desert Vista Dyeworks in the Disneyland colorway.  She also started a pair of Saki Slippers by Nell Knits out of handspun.  This was a braid of Knitspinfarm top in corriedale that I spun with the help of the nieces during TDF this year.  Next on the needles is another pair of slippers out of some Into the Whirled handspun.
