Gift socks and poncho

Just a few things I got done over the weekend between work and other obligations. I put in a pic of the sox I am making for my aunt for Christmas. The blue sock is from the pattern book--it is the basic sock pattern from the book "Learn To Knit Socks" by Edie Eckman--12 designs in sportweight yarn. It is from The American School of Needlework. She is allergic to acrylic and wool, so it is really hard to knit anything for her. It will be made from Cascade Fixation yarn. A pic is above of the sock on the needles. Not sure if I like it or not, but am sure that it will do. Also crocheted poncho is half done. It is 2 rectangles sewn together, Pic above. Well, plan to spend rest of the day doing housecleaning today and hopefully tomorrow sorting through summer and winter clothes--ugh. Ah well, needs done. Happy knitting to all.

I really like the colors in the cascade you have going there, I bet they'll do VERY well =) The poncho is looking very nice as well.

Mom, those socks are adorable! I'm sure Aunt Edna will love them.

That poncho does go fast!

I'm knitting away on the baby blanket. I love it! It is so fun.

I'm having a great time. Watching some movies and taking walks. I'm about to take a nap.

Made it through night 1 with no bat sightings :::snort:::

Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying such nice things about my new little one! I think your sock will turn out lovely! Your poncho too!

Hello again!! Thanks for linking me in your earlier post. I think both projects in this post look great! I especially like the cuff of that sock, different than the usual. Good work!
