One FO, one nearly FO
Here's a self-fringing shawl knitted in Debbie Bliss SoHo:



And here are some socks I did for my youngest daughter. They are nearly done, just need a couple of rows of ribbing at the cuff:

My dd would love socks that those, so pretty!

The shawl is lovely - is the fringe looped? It looks cool.

Thanks!

Melinda- yeah, the fringe is looped. I knit a 5 stitch garter border along the bottom, then when it's done, unravel those 5 stitches all the way across to make the fringe. It's scary the first time, but it works!

I really like the colors on the shawl too. And that unraveling to get fringe is genius! Scary but genius lol I like the hearts on the socks too. I've only ever done plan socks, maybe I should get around to branching out :P
