The first two FO's that have been donated to the regional cancer center! The first is Wendy Johnson's Fir Cone wrap done in Dalegarn Falk. I used 10 balls and completed the wrap in about a week.
The second is one of my basketweave throws, done in Plymouth Encore Colorspun. I used 4 balls for this throw as I needed to make a shorter throw than I usually make.

I've been neglecting my blog in favour of Ravelry. Sorry non-Ravs. I wanted to post this pair of socks that I made with the new Noro Kureyon sock yarn. The colourway is S188 and, yes, I made them idential twins! I did this by noting where I started the first sock, then after completing that sock, I searched for the matching color repeat to start the second sock. I may have been off by a yard or two, but it's close enough. These were made on a size 1 needle (magic loop, of course). I cast on 80 sts and just worked stockinette stitch (after a 1x1 ribbed cuff).
