The evidence

I did finish the socks and the mint and citrus blanket. I even dealt with all the threads before I took their photo's while the sun was visiting today.
The blanket was a previously resting project which saw daylight again in March. It was started a few years ago to use up stash yarn but as I was fixated on the pretty white border I had to buy another ball of yarn to finish it. Fortunately I used more than half the ball completing the border.
The yarn is Patons Big Baby 4 ply in lemon, mint green, white and a multi coloured - blue/green/lemon.
The cream and burgundy Sanquar socks were started in March and finished this week.
Mother's day sorted - yippee.
Even the inside looks cool
Sanquhar socks designed by Beth B Parrott from 'Knitting socks from Around the World'.
Yarn from the stash - Bendigo Woollen Mills 3 ply and vintage Patons Beehive 3 ply.
 
Slowly working my way through my stash of yarn.
Thanks to Ana and Linda for the Stash buster initiative.
Wishing you sunshine in your creative space.
