The 52 Finish Challenge #2

This is a pair of socks I knitted for my son.  We visited a yarn store  Halcyon Yarn in Thanksgiving time 2013 and he said  he would like warm wool socks - he likes to keep up his supply he said.
So we bought  " Tuffy" a Canadian Sock yarn and I finished  the pain 3/15/2014.
I used  two ball simultaneously - one for each sock and tried to complete the same section on each before moving on, that way I DID finish both socks. Using the 2013Yankee  Knitter Designs sock pattern .
I think the pattern  must  be modeled on an older one because   it is called  Classic Socks #29.
Completion Date March 15, 2014

The 52 Finish Challenge # 1

February 2014 I am taking the challenge - to FINISH 52  things in the next 52  weeks.
The first one was to do the  Binding on the small wall hanging based on the book Piecing Workshop  by Ruth McDowell.  And it had been started at my Discovery Group  January Retreat - but not sure how many years ago 2009?
This was all complete except for binding for 5 years I guess. Finished the binding  March 2, 2014
I was staying home recovering from minor skin surgery and also suffering a cold.
BUT  I finished it!
