One sock down!

I put off posting a couple days this week so I could finish the first swap sock. Finished it late last night - One down, one to go! :)

Baby Blanket is done!

Well, I *finally* finished the circular baby blanket I've been working on for my newest grandson, due in late October or early November. It's worth all the time put into it - very pretty swirly pattern and the unusual shape makes it a stand out. But I'm SO GLAD it is done! I was so bored with it and so tired of it! Finally bound off at 600 stitches around, then did 1 1/2" of crocheted border to help it stay flat.

Now I can get back to my Hogwart's Sock Swap socks and get them finished.

And the socks I've got on the needles for my son, who called me up the other day to inquire as to *why* he didn't have them yet ....... seems he has worn out the first pair he got already ......

And then there's the socks I want to make for myself - cold weather is rapidly approaching and I've only got 2 pairs of wool socks left in my drawer - 2 pairs felted and 1 pair wore out ....... I need more socks!!

And then my daughter seems to think *she* should get a pair or three ......

Ya know, I think I'm gonna be making socks for awhile here, not to mention the charity knitting for Newborns in Need .....

Nearly forgot to post this week! Have been working on a baby blanket for a new grandson that needs to go out very soon, so not much progress on my socks for this swap this week.

Have sent away for a couple of items for the swap, tho. :)
