Dragonfly Socks

Finished these this morning.  Hot and windy makes for perfect and fast blocking weather.  The yarn is from Knitpicks and the color is "Frozen" which we so aren't right now. ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️

Pattern is a freebie on Ravelry called Dragonfly.  Mine is heavily modified as there was a mistake in the pattern.  You will end up with 18 stitches after the heel turn not 14.  I also charted the cuff pattern to speed up the knitting.  I prefer chart reading to words.

Nautical Pennants Quilt

Missouri Star pattern and template used for this one.  Made for a friend's birthday.  She lives on the coast in CA and has a boat.  Her house is very beachy.  

Found the perfect backing at a local quilt shop, The Quilted Crow.
