Three WsIP!
I have several things on the needles that I am actively working on right now.

Silver's Palindrome Hat in Plymouth Encore for DH. He picked out the pattern and color. I must have frogged this thing 5 times before I was happy. The ribbing just wasn't cutting it. That loose stitch between the knit and purl was driving me nuts. I finally worked out a method that worked for me so I can live with it. I kind of wish that the cables were centered (for my picky side), but that is the nature of the pattern. (It's not obvious till it's stretched out like on a head)


My fraternal socks made with Trekking XXL, size 1 and 0 needles. I split the yarn by weight and one ball seems to have more of the coral color so I've had to switch the balls. I may have to do it again. We'll see.


And finally my One Row Scarf from Yarn Harlot. It's in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. I want to make a sweater with this yarn, but I am so sensitive to wool that I decided to make a scarf before I commit to buying a sweaters worth. So far it feels nice, but my neck will be the deciding factor. This is a super easy and mindless pattern!

I love the socks Jan! And the colors are falling so well on the scarf. Very pretty.

I like your husbands pick for his hat. It's looking good.

Socks are more fun when they don't look just alike. A lot less boring to knit too. I see you are doing the socks at the same time. Are they each on their own Magic Loop needle?

Nice yarn and stitch on the scarf too.
