Socks and Baby Blanket are Done

Yippee! I didn't do the full Mason Dixon Moderne because I didn't want a crib-sized blanket, but what I did end up with is a very large receiving blanket and/or nicely sized lap blanket.

The Horcrux socks are finished too. I had a ball doing those, but I need to work on my kitchener stitch (or have someone standing over my shoulder to make sure that I'm getting it right).

I've started a chicken and so far, so good. It's unnatural how much I like Lamb's Pride. Don't ask me why...maybe it's just my first love, but if I could bury my basement in this stuff, I would. (I know a few who'd say the same, but with Blue Moon sock yarn, so I know I'm not alone in this fiber obsession). :)

Happy knitting all!

I am so looking forward to seeing the chicken doorstop . I have always meant to make a "Little Grey Rabbit" one ( childhood bunny heroine).

Your blankie is gorgeous as are the socks (holy smokes those are pretty colours!)
You'll get used to the kitchener and you'll laugh about how hard it was to do the first couple of times.

Nope, you're not alone at all. I'd roll around in alpaca yarn and whinny if I didn't think people would look at me strangely. The horcrux socks look absolutely lovely.
