FO Friday 5/30/14

First I want to say how excited I am with the new banner and wallpaper on the blog. Jess you are amazing!

Tuesday was an exhausting day for me on the work front.  By the time I got home, a severe thunderstorm was rolling in and I just wanted to watch some Gossip Girl on Netflix and finish my Van Gogh socks.  It's funny, when I cast on the 2nd sock I wasn't trying to match this pair up.  Normally I make my socks all matchy-matchy if there is any sort of striping involved.  For this pair I figured I would just go with the flow, cast on where I left off on the first sock.  I think fate knew I would regret that decision later.  It just so happened that where I ended the first sock was just a row or two off from the color I started the first sock with. socks are accidentally almost identical.

This week I only have a few tiny FOs to share.  A woman in Hufflepuff lost her infant daughter so we are making blanket squares that she and a few others will seam together and donate.  One of the squares is based on the log cabin blanket design, the other two with the hearts I designed myself.  

All of the squares were made with Pound of Love yarn and measure 5" square.

  1. I am amazed and envious that your socks matched without you trying. I can't ever get them to match no matter how hard I try. They are beautiful!

    I love the pattern! It is classy and lovely.
