An FO and some SAM socks

I decided to complete a WIP over Easter week-end when dd was visiting. I chose the Hemlock Ring Doily Throw that I started about 18 months ago. I found the knitted edging to be very slow going for me with the arthritic joint at the base of my right thumb ... heavy knitting tends to aggravate it a lot. I did, however, finish knitting and did the blocking earlier this week. It ended up blocking to 56 inches diameter.
Just completed my April socks. These are Cookie A's Glynis socks from Sock Innovation. The yarn was the March shipment from the Unique Sheep's Sip 'n Stitch Club - Footprints in the Quechua colorway. I did 2AAT on #2 Addi ml.
