Toe Up Sock

This is my first toe up sock using my new US 1 1/2 9 inch circulars. The yarn is a hand dyed merino/bamboo/nylon fingering I got on ebay from Oldfield Creek Sock & Yarn, a fellow man who knits.

Cabled Chemo Cap

Another chemo cap. This one is made from Knitpicks Shine Worsted in Hollyberry. The picture does not do the yarn justice, it is a very rich dark red, just beautiful.

Butterfly Hat

This is another hat I have made to donate to chemo patients. It is made from a hand painted merino yarn I purchased on Etsy.

I'm currently contemplating ordering some sock yarn from Blue Moon but am not sure if one skein will be enough for a pair of men's socks.

I am making these for Dennis's (HWMBO) 5 yr old grandaughter. I used the size 2 yr pattern except my gauge is 6 sts per inch instead of 8 so they should fit her.
