Oslo Walk Shawl

Have finished the 34 chart rows, should go pretty quickly now. I know there are some errors in the first rows but I couldn't see them until I was way past that point - so there they will stay. It's a learning experience and if there is a second shawl it will be much better.

August Sock

"Twisted Flower" socks by Cookie A, the August sock in the KAL. Knit with Hiya Hiya 2.25mm dps and Grant Creek Cushy Merino/Nylon in "Peachy Pink". This sock was quite easy to knit even though it looks very difficult. It went quickly and the only mod I made was to shorten the heel flap a bit for a better fit.
