Cabled Hat
1.25 skeins of Patons Rumor
5.5mm and 6mm needles
Finished in one day sitting on the beach.
Commissioned by a co-worker for a daughter-in-law's Christmas gift.

My first toe-up socks - made to fit in plain stockinette stitch, Black Lamb superwash merino-nylon blend and 2.5 mm circulars. I learned two new processes - Judy's magic cast-on and short-row heels.

I also finished a third quickie cowl using Misti Alpaca Chunky in a light blue. I could knit this cowl forever. Again, it only took a couple of hours to knit. Gots to love that. It actually looks exactly like the one on the pattern page. No need for a picture. :)

Cheers! Happy Civic Holiday! I gets to return to work tomorrow. Oh, the dread.
