Production Spurt

I seem to have a bit of a production spurt.  Not sure how long it's going to last, we'll have to see.
I cranked out a super fast pair of Broadripples for the Oldest One's French immersion Quebec trip silent auction.  These babies were started on April 1st and finished the 4th.  He had to take them to school on the 5th for the auction on the 6th.  I used 2.75mm needles and Patons Kroy in krazy stripes.  Details here.  (I made a pair of these exactly the same years ago for my BFF when we drove almost the whole way across Canada.  I started hers here at home and finished them in Fort McMurray, AB!)

Second up is another pair of ankle socks.  I knew I wouldn't have enough Noro Silk Garden Sock to make an entire pair of ankle socks, so I dug through the stash and found some leftovers of what I believe is old Bernat Sox for the picot cuff, heels, and toes.  These ones were also knit on 2.75mm needles and started on April 4, finished on the 9th.  Details here.
I really have to get the new nephew's baby blanket finished.  BUT... the Littlest One has a school Spring Fiesta coming up on the 20th, and they have a silent auction at that as well.  I was thinking about trying to whip up something quick for that as well!  Hopefully this production line will continue on for the next while!
Happy knitting!
