Blankie

Hemlock Ring 1

I used about 2.1 balls of Bendigo Woollen Mills' Rustic 12 ply in Elm. The .1 of a ball was courtesy of knittyrobyn from Ravelry. More pics here or on ravelry.

Oh and I finished the bumpy socks started just before our Japan trip.

Bumpy Socks 1

The yarn is from Live2Knit, Joan in colour Choc Cherry. The pattern is based on Gentlemen's Half Hose in Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks. I think I started with more stitches and made a longer heel, and used a tubular cast on. Needles were 2.5mm KnitPicks Options dpns.

Ah, LOVE that blanket! Yours is beautiful! (I want to make one but it looks a little complicated - I must though, it's so pretty!)

Nice socks!
