New projects started

Here's a blanket I started about a month ago for my sister's birthday in late may. It's very similar to Sophie's blanket I finished for Christmas (all cables), but just on a bigger scale. I find that even though I'm using circular needles, it still takes a toll on my shoulders, so I have a secondary project started: A new pair of socks in Berrocco Ultra Alpaca. This new pair of socks will be a Christmas gift for either one of four people with similar size feet.

New socks

Here's a new pair of socks I started while on vacation at my parents about a month ago. It seemed very much needed then: it was very cold and these are made with Berroco Ultra Alpaca. But spring is coming, so I won't need them so much, right? I hope spring is here to stay...
I've started another pair of socks in Berroco Ultra Alpaca. This pair is for a Christmas gift. That's right Christmas! There's only about nine months left!
