Two for the Price of One

I am in finishing mode! Except for the felted bunny that is. I cajoled the oldest to pose with the socks and the cowl, and I begged J to fix the card error on the camera, and I was able to capture some adequate photos.

The Quickie Cowl by Fawn Pea using exactly one skein of the called for Misti Alpaca Chunky wool in a minty green and a pair of 10 mm needles. Started at bedtime March 24 and finished March 26 in the car on the way home from work. This was super quick and super easy and super soft. I could have finished it in less time if I had stayed more focused. Here it is in action!

And my second FO of the day is the Monkey socks by Cookie A. using Patons Kroy 4-ply wool and two 2.5mm circs. I started these socks when I was really sick on March 7 and finished one sock by the next day. The second sock took me a bit longer, and I ended up grafting the toe after dinner today. This pattern is 12 rows, but so mother-flippin' easy that I didn't even refer to the chart for the entire second sock. They are destined for my mum for Mother's Day. I hope she loves them as much as I do!

I am pooped. G'night, all!
