Another month, really?

As we get ready to turn the page on the calendar...would you believe just a week left in May?! I am glad to say that I am slowly, but surely getting some knitting done. Here's my progress since my last post.
I did some stash diving and found some leftover Knit Picks City Tweed that turned into an Egg to Bird in a nest. The pattern is by Susan B. Anderson and can be found in Itty-Bitty Toys. I gave away the others that I have made, this one can't seem to fly the nest. :)

Also had a change to cast on and finish a Cozy Big Bow Headband using Lion Brand's Baby First. Love the squishy-ness on the finished product, but really not my favorite yarn to work with. I just casted on again for another headband without the bow to use up the yarn. The pattern calls for casting on 12 stitches. I did another casting on just 8. Love the finished headband. My bow could have been a little more floppy, I haven't attached it yet. I'm thinking about putting the bow on a hair clip instead...

And finally on my needles... another sock! Just a simple one using Knit Picks Felici in Aquarium. Bright green, very different from the dark red of my previous sock. Ribbed cuff, stockinette leg and foot with a slipped stitch heel. Nothing fancy. I finished one side and have just cast on the second side.

Two points for me - getting some knitting done and using my stash! Happy knitting!
