Shawl and Socks

I got this shawl off the needles last week, but I decided that I will make at least one round of crochet across the top edge to strengthen it.  If I was a little more experienced, I would have done something different along that edge from the beginning.  Since this is my first attempt at a knit shawl I learned a few things.  A friend gave me this pattern.  I later saw her shawl that she had made with her homespun yarn and it was beautiful.  Some day I hope to remake this pattern with a different edge and with a yarn that I have spun and dyed myself!  Check out what others are working on at Judy's Patchwork Times

My socks are almost off the needle.  I just need to do the kitchener stitch to finish the toe.  I love making these socks.  They work up quickly on a size 3 or 4 needle.
