Socks and Blanket

I knitted up the second Arne and Carlos sock yarn for myself. Also knitted two pairs of socks for my sisters as birthday gifts. I used 2.25 mm needles for all three pairs. 68 stitches for my socks and 60 for those of my sisters. I had some Briggs and Little sport left over from other projects and knitted up a blanket. I have made some in the past but they were about 60 inches square and didn't cover me from head to toe when napping.

Pattern help

I've just finished this row for lace *k2, yo, k2tog*, repeat * till last 4sts, k1, m1r, k3
Then it show to work as for Lace Insert #1 (Rows 1-16)
When I go back to those instructions it reads
.....work it as k3, m1L, k2, *yo, k2tog, k2* repeat till the wrapped stitch.

Current events

Still working on the sock yarn version of the tube sock. I'm about 4 inches into the second sock.
I'm also enroute to the 5th Rocky Mountain Men's Knitting Retreat in Allenspark, CO. It goes from 11th to the 14th of June and is my absolute "me-time" vacation.
That means I'll be out of touch for several days. Take care and keep the needles clicking.
