Too big on the inside

Finished the leg and part of the foot of tardis sock #1.   The only problem is that without any ribbing on the foot the sock  will be sloppy big on dd2.  So I will frog the foot and do a simple rib hat follows the placement of the slipped stitch.  Then the sock will be bigger on the inside but not loose.

Included a lovely wool cable headband 

And a not so lovely acrylic hat in the latest batch to the Carmen Arce middle school in Connecticut. 
It will keep a child's ears warm, but the process was not pleasant.  It is interesting how some acrylic yarn is a dream to work with, talking about you Caron Simply Soft.  And others are rough and know who you need to name names we all know.

 Finished another pair of socks with an after thought heel.  I think it's my new favorite.  I've been using Laura Linneman's after thought heel pattern. I found it on ravelry.   The yarn is wisdom yarn marathon series.  I found at a Tuesday Morning.   The socks will be destined for the Carmen Ace middle school in ct.

Felt compelled to buy a new case for my phone.  It was on sale for 50% off at Target.   How could I pass it by.  
 It's a lovely Limey green.

I just finished my second BARLEY hat by Tincan knits.  It is a free pattern with a full range of sizes.   It's amazing what a section of garter stitch on a simple stockingette hat will so.  

So hat number 2 with leftovers from a baby sweater dd2 knit.  The end of the grey and hunter green.
