Aww, shucks everyone , 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 .
