The hat and socks are dried and blocked. I'm okay with how they both turned out. The only thing I would do differently with the hat is, I would take the ribbing down to 1.5 inches instead of the 2.5 inches that it is. Since I will only be wearing the hat when I'm out exercising (walking), I'm not really that concerned about it. I tend to like my hats to be form fitting on the head (more like a Beanie) instead of baggy. As far a the socks go, I'll try and get Mark to send me a picture of him wearing these socks like he did the first ones I knit for him.

P. S. Ugh, I do not take good pictures, so I hope it doesn't hurt anyone's eyesight upon viewing.

The photos are great I really like the ones where your modeling the hat and in the background is your Ott-lamp with cable needles hanging on it.

Your knitting is flawless. The tension is always so even. Well done. I like your color choices as well. Does the Ott lamp make a difference? I am thinking of getting one for my chair and desk.
