Fir Cone Wrap and Basketweave Blanket

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.

Catching up with some projects

Since I'm spending more time on Ravelry these days, I want to post a few more FOs for those who don't "ravel". First, more finished socks!

Noro Kureyon socks

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).
