Stripey Sock Saturday

I had another yarn-filled weekend.  I should’ve been studying since my exams are at the end of the week, but I decided to have a nice relaxing weekend followed by a few hectic weekdays.  My Summer CAL blanket is finally blocking, which is very satisfying 🙂  It looks lovely on my floor, and I’m sure will look just as lovely when draped on my couch after blocking (it wasn’t blocked in the lounge photo below).  It has turned out to be almost as big as my Sophie’s Universe blanket, which is a comfortable lapghan size.  Speaking of my Sophie – it’s now nicely folded and awaiting transport to the showgrounds in just under two weeks.

I made a lot of progress on my stripey knitted socks, and thanks to a few random questions to my mum on Skype I managed to complete the leg, heel flap, heel turn and gusset decrease.  The sock is a bit more progressed than the images below show, but you get the idea – it’s definitely looking like a sock now!
