Made it in time

Finished the 4th Mission Possible project before the end of April. Yay!

The Ackward Socks are all done. I was a bit dubious when they came off the needles. They were a bit, um, lumpy. But blocking really did work it's magic. (I don't usually block socks at all, but I wanted them to look nice for their picture.)

All in all, if I do these again I'm going to handle to patterning on the gusset and sole differently. But they will be nice and warm next winter, with a sort of homey, folksy feel.

So what's next on the list? Well I do still have one more afghan's worth of Warm Up America blocks.

These have been "out of sight, out of mind" for I'd guess at least a year. All acrylic, mostly rather firmly crocheted, made by volunteers who sent them to the Craft Yarn Council, who sent them to me. High time I got started on putting them together (I did volunteer,after all). I'm not even going to try to get this all done in a month. I'll get started and work diligently, if intermittently (promise to self and the world).

That leaves me needing a "sure to be finished before May is done project". I think I'll improvise a hat. That's always fun.

Your socks turned out great!

Good luck with sewing together the blocks for the blanket... It would be a real challenge for me to commit to finishing that in a month, too. I bet that once you get going on it, however.....

Great socks! If I were a knitter of colorwork, which I am not, I would think about making some. Then again, maybe I should think about finishing my WIPs.
