A few more things finished.

It looks and feels nice. But I would never use the Debbie mum traditions yarn again.  
I've been knitting for a school in Connecticut.  I found them on the ravelry forum "are your warm enough".  They need the normal warm weather gear; hats, scarves, mittens.   They also collect vests and sweaters that work with their school uniforms, so black and white.  Most interesting is the teacher collects hand knit socks and uses them as incentives/rewards.  

I used leftover yarn from the color affection shawl for a pair of socks.

Then I used some donated yarn for a hat.  
It looks nice. It feels soft. But the yarn was horrible.
