on sock-knitting detours

Instead of diving right in to the next pair of socks, I found a quick hat pattern (the Tahoe Hat) in the latest Spin-Off and decided to use some of my handspun stash.

The small ball of weirdness is being knit into an I-cord so that I can make an adjustable band. I also have my Fairy Ring Oracle book out to read up on my daily pick, the Leprechaun (hopefully, it's not like the movie). That divination is waiting for a second cup of tea. The first is spent getting people out the door in time for the bus.
