F.O.: Blue-Green Stripey Socks

Texas summer or not, I've still been knitting socks:
I used size US00 circular needles, with Online Supersocke 100 Emotion II - Color yarn in colorway 1219. I made them for a close friend of my middle child; it took rather longer than normal because I had to stop and knit several hats and mittens for cosplay outfits.

WIP - cabled tunic

This is a dress/tunic I'm working on. It's been knitting up pretty quick, partly because I'm not using a cable needle for the cables, and partly because it's big yarn. I bought the yarn quite some time ago because it was soft, pretty, and on sale. And it only took me a year to find a pattern for it ;-)
