Working on Unfinished Knits & Crochets

I recently completed (at long last, that is) my second Opal sock and here is a picture showing you the great colors in this yarn.  I'm giving these to my darling daughter for her birthday in September and I know she'll love slipping them on when the weather turns cooler! ♥
So that frees me to begin finishing some many neglected UFO's.  I began this continuous granny blanket at least 2 years ago and didn't get very far before stashing it away.  I am now working on it once again and plan to complete it this time around.  The yarn is Jaeger's Extra Fine Merino, DK weight and I'm using a size G hook so the progress is a bit slower than usual but very lovely, nonetheless.

I'm also crocheting a baby Shells blanket using Caron's Simply Soft yarn which makes for a very light yet very soft yarn to eventually be next to a baby's delicate skin.  I fell in love with this pattern so I started it about 4 months ago.  This isn't one of my older unfinished projects but I want to complete it so I'll be working on these 2 and post pics of my progress from time to time.

So, until we meet again, be well and be happy and knit (and/or) crochet to your heart's content.
