A Few October Finishes

 Second pair done!

 The foot.

 The leg. I am wearing these socks right now and they are super warm and cozy. They weren't made from sock yarn but from really soft yarn. They knit up really quick. I might have to make some more. I think they would feel really great in winter boots or skates. I have already cast on a third pair. My husband says I have found my calling.

Remember this piece of fabric?

 I finished the table runner, using only that one piece of fabric. I added the black for sashing and borders.

 I used black thread around the applique to give it a more stain glass look. I added a hanging sleeve since it was originally designed to be a wall hanging. (the pin you can see in the corner was keeping the sleeve out of the way while I attached the binding). The pattern is from a Fons & Porters magazine and it's a gift so no full pictures. But I love it and want to keep it for myself.

 Pansies! It must be for my sister.

I also finished the lap quilt for my son.

I zig zagged around the circle appliques, then stitched in the ditch around all the blocks. He has already used it several times. I've used it too, after he's gone to bed. It's just the right size and warmth.

No batting, just some fleece remnants on the back.
