Two for One

Per usual, blogger screwed up when I posted some socks a week ago. So now you get socks AND a hat.

I just finished my second Maltese Fisherman Hat in Cascade 220 and finished it with "the tassel of my dreams". The hat is ingenious.

And the socks. The sock pattern is a modified version of the Swirl Socks. I worked them cuff down instead of toe up and used EZ's afterthought heel as an experiment. For the "toe" I used in the afterthought heel, it was the wide toe from Nancy Bush's _Knitting Vintage Socks_. Picking out the stitches for the heel is a bit nitpicky and aggravating. But the heel fits fantastically.
