FO: second pair of toe-up socks and small pinwheel blankie

Here is my second finished pair of Queen Kahuna Crazy Toes and Heels socks, done toe-up, two at a time on two circulars. I’m really liking this technique a lot! Now if I could only find my book which is MIA at the moment so I can do another pair… lol - I have about 22 balls of sock yarn yet to use!
The second finished object is a small pinwheel blanket for the Compassionate Knitting project KAL. Its about 13" across made from this pattern: http://www.knitlist.com/00gift/round-baby-blanket.htm . It needs a wash and a slight presing to get it to lay flatter.

Everything looks great!! You did a marvelous job!

Wow, I cant believe those socks, they are awesome!!

Wow, everything looks great! I :heart: the beautiful blanket for the Compassionate Knitting Project KAL. I’ve never done anything in the round before like that.

I am quite impressed by your socks. I tried toe-up socks once, but the short-row heels were more than I could handle. Yours turned out sooo nicely - and to think that you did it on circs too. I am in awe!

Beautiful! And, those socks – they’re fabulous!!!

GORGEOUS socks!! :inlove: :inlove:

The blanket is nice!! :heart:

I LOVE YOUR SOCKS! That color is absolutely beautiful. I don’t think I could ever wear them. I would buy a foot mannequin like they have in shoe stores, to display my socks for the world to see.

Your socks are amazing - good job :happydance: The blanket is the sweetest ever :inlove: I love it…

Great photos and post - thanks for sharing :thumbsup:

You ALWAYS do such beautiful work, Mary…those socks are GAWGEOUS!

Aww, shucks everyone :blush: , thanks for the kind words! The socks were really not as hard as they look - the Queen Kahuna book is VERY detailed and walks you through every step very clearly (darn thing where did it go so I can get started on the next pair?! :?? ). The fake cable and rib pattern on the leg is deceptively simple as well, just YO’s and psso’s make the cable looking part. The blanket I had to do twice - I wasn’t paying close enough attention when I started my increases in the first few rows and I ended up with one extra section the first time, and didn’t notice until I bound the poor thing off and it was not even close to flat LOL! So I frogged the entire thing and started over. Its a good thing the pattern was pretty easy and didn’t take too long or I might have just cried :frog: :wink: .

:cheering: Fantastic, beautiful work!

Everything looks wonderful - great job & great colors!

I :heart: that sock pattern! I’ve been looking for something similar to that for my STR wool. Great job!

the sox look great, I’m scared to try such a project. I like to see your blankie, it’s pretty, and upi did a great job.

Most excellent job!!! I love, love that sock pattern & your blankie is wonderful :smiley:

Beautiful! That blankie is nice in that you can make it as small or big as you like. I’m going to have to try it someday!

I love your socks! I’m just going to have to break down and buy that book.
