The Blanket and the Sock Throwdown

I finished the Epic Brown Baby Blanket that I knit for my niece's little boy.  He was born at the end of May and is as cute as all get out.  I used the Quadrature for Korrigan Pattern and Berroco Modern Cotton in Richard Williams.  I used a size 7 needle and I will probably knit this pattern again.  I will admit the border seemed to take forever but I love how it turned out.

Now, I am moving on to Sock Throwdown.  I have four pairs of socks on the needles and it is kind of bugging me a little.  I really want to get these done so I can cast on more. The top pair is vanilla socks using some handspun yarn. The pair on the left is my June socks for the Desert Vista Dyeworks Second Annual Sock Knitalong.  The pair in the middle is Ella Rae Lace Merino using the Zigzagular Pattern. The pair on the right is a vanilla pair using the March sock blank from Gales Art sock blank club.  My goal is to have two of these finished by the end of the month.
