I did a baby hat and booties for a friend, they were made with the leftovers from a pair of socks. The yarn was a gift from last summers yarn swap from Sara Jayne.
The other item is the beginning of the Monkey sock from Knitty.
It is made from a beautiful hand dyed Merino from Cindy H, another wonderful treasure from Sara Jayne. It was one of those yarns that didn't really know what it wanted to be, and finally revealed itself.
