Socks Squared

Ok. So the title says "socks" and yes... there are plenty of those to come but I also knit myself this lovely little 'knitted helmet' and I feel as though you deserve a little looksie. It's from this website and it's called the Amelia Earhart Aviator cap. Whether I'll wear it on a regular basis has yet to be decided... but it was a hoot to make. One of those obsessive little projects that you whip through in one sitting and take breaks only for the bathroom and to make more tea. I knit it out of Scheepjes 'Donna' and I do love it. 50 wool/50 acrylic. Lovely. Just like this picture. (ahem)


Now, here are my first pair of socks for this post for you. They are the Monkey Socks from Knitty and I had a great time with them. Recognize the yarn? It's my Sweet Georgia yarn in 'Blue Fig'. Sadly, it's hard to see the pattern in these photos but it's the best that my camera can do at the moment. Please forgive moi. Notice how differently the colour in both came out? Funny. I love them though.


Here's another shot for you... with a cozy dust bunny hanging off of my left foot.


And here is another pair of socks that were sitting on my desk for over a month... just needing a second toe. I finally got to it and they're done. I did them out of Trekking XXL in colour 131.


Wanna play 'spot the dust bunny' with me?
Er, just kidding.

So pretty!
And the hat and socks aren't bad either.

Hey, I like the lilac color for the hat! It's such a dissapointment seeing the sweet gorgia yarn turn out that way! I have some in my stash, I hope they don't pool like that. Trekking XXL is one of my favorite sock yarn. Your colorway I have NOT, but many others! HeHe! ;o)
