FO hat and scarf set and WIP Queen Kahuna socks
This hat and scarf I made as a Christmas present for my BIL - they're made in Wool Ease. The socks I'm doing as a KAL with my SnB group using the Queen Kahuna Crazy Toes and Heels Socks book and they are being made with Paton's Kroy Socks.

Nice! I like all those colors! I used wool-ease on a hat and I just recently washed it and it's very soft now!

Wow!! Great work. I love the scarf/hat set - the colors are great, too! You are going to love doing the Queen Kahuna Socks. I just finished my first pair and have started on the second pair. "Queen Kahuna" is a genius!
It looks like you have made a wonderful start on your pair.

Very nice! I haven't gotten my head around that sock technique, but it looks very clever. Love the colors of your sock yarn!

Thanks everyone! I never thought I would be doing 2 socks on 2 circs (especially since I only made my first sock on DPN's about 2 months ago and only have done 2 more socks since!), but the KAL at my SnB group egged me on to do it. I really didn't understand it at all until I sat down with the book and read through some of it and skimmed a bunch as well. Right now I'm kind of just reading as I need to. The really nice thing is that you don't have to swatch if you don't want to for toe up socks! I hate swatching!! LOL. My feet will be very colorfull when these are done, and no SSS to deal with .
