More socks

Basic vanilla sock pattern with a peacock stitched and reinforced heel.  Bought the yarn somewhere in Maine when we were on vacation and I know it was dyed by a Maine Indy dyer but I can't remember the name of the shop and the label to the yarn is gone.  Was going to keep them but they are too big so I'll put them on the Christmas pile and someone with feet bigger than mine will get them.  

And now to try and finish this little cabled nightmare :)

Guernsey Shawl

This is a wider version of the Jared Flood Brooklyn Tweed Guernsey Wrap.  It's the same pattern as the gray one I made.  I used approx. 10 balls of Valley yarn Amherst from Webs.  I'm happy with the way it turned out. There are a couple of us doing this pattern as a group KAL and we're having a good time with it. I used Valley yarn Amherst from Webs.  It blocks great.
