As you saw in my last post, I've been working on the lining for a wool hat. Since I can't wear wool directly against my skin but wanted to use the luscious Malabrigo yarn, I needed to put a layer of cotton between the hat and my skin. I used my favorite stretchy cotton yarn: Cascade Fixation. I'm not going to attach them so that I can wear the liner hat separate on the less chilly days. I'll be happy to see these when it gets cold again.
I have taken my Fleece Artist yarn out of time-out and have started another sock with it. I finally settled on a pattern from Sensational Socks but only after multiple failed attempts to make a Monkey sock and a failed attempt at a Jaywalker sock. My gauge just didn't want to cooperate. So far so good with the Sensational Socks pattern.
Paul and I went to the park today to enjoy the sunshine and get some work done on our respective projects.

All in all, it was a splendid way to end a splendid weekend.
