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.

Wow, everything looks great! I 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!

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.

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 .
