Very beautiful blanket.  I love the green, but then I'm really green inside, LOL.

Love your socks.  They do sort of stripe.  They're nice, anyway!

There is the Magic Loop method and the Two Circulars method and they are not the same thing. http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/advanced-techniques has both videos on the same page.  The buttons for them are directly underneath the text. 

In Magic Loop you use a needle with a long, flexible cable and literally pull part of the cable away from half (or whatever) of the stitches to make a loop hanging out of the ring.  The stitches you want to knit stay up near the needle point to be worked.  The stitches which will not be worked this time slide back away from their needle point to rest while the needle tip is used to knit the working ones.  Then the whole thing is turned over, the stitches are reset to be at the end to work or moved back to rest and you knit again.

In Two Circulars, you hold half or so of your stitches on one needle and half on the other.  Each needle knits its own stitches consecutively. 

You could knit with two sizes of needles IF you constantly change the stitches to be knit with one size.  Otherwise I think you will end up with different gauges.

Oooooo, pretty sweater!  I can't tell for sure what color is it?  It looks pale blue on my monitor.  I love these simple, elegant things.

What a lovely scarf!  I really like the soft colors they should be flattering to almost anyone.  Very nice.

Oh, no, not the whole hood.  I picked up stitches at the neckline to make the hood and when it was the correct height, I kitchenered the top so there wouldn't be a seam running from the crown to the brim at the face.  Make sense?  I'm sorry that was confusing.

I recently finished and Irish Hiking Scarf for my husband of Jager yarn, 85/15, acrylic/wool.  It is 65" long.  My husband would like it longer, but thankfully I ran out of yarn, LOL.  It was fun but got really tedious at the end.

Then I also just finished a little sweater for one of our granddaughters.  Here is the original pattern.  You can see that I made a number of changes.  The hood is also kitchenered, of which I am quite pleased.  Although I have done quite a bit of starting sweaters, this is the first actually finished.  It is of Lion Brand Cotton Ease in their maize color.  Our little grand has red hair, so this will be beautiful on her.
