Knitted and Crocheted FOs: socks and blanket!

I finished a pair of socks for me - they're knit in Knit Picks Stroll Tonal in Wine-Tasting - but it looks more like Lambic Framboise than wine to me!

I also finished a crocheted blanket for my son. I set out to make each of my kids a full-sized twin (or larger) handmade blanket, and this completes the set. Four blankets! Whew! (The other three can be seen here, here, and here.)

Gamgee picked out both the colors and the pattern for this one. The yarn is Knit Picks Brava Worsted, and the pattern is the Good Cause Afghan from Crochet Today. I had the magazine, but I believe the pattern is free at that link.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

Eshet chayil! (Hebrew for "woman of valor" -- read "A Year of Biblical Womanhood" by Rachel Held Evans.)

I'm a fellow crocheter so I am impressed.

Thank you!

(And Jen, I used the word "Chayil" as a character name back in high school - picked it out of a Hebrew dictionary on my dad's shelf! I loved the meaning and the sound. :D )

I love that you've made one for each of your darling children. You're an inspiration!

Beautiful! I love the colors in the socks and in the blanket. What a wonderful gift for each of them.
