Socks and hat

Here is some of what I plan to send to afghans for Afghans. I'd made the hat some time ago, and the socks I finished last night. They're worsted weight, so they went quickly--the second one took me only 2 evenings. I'd never made socks with short-row heels before. I like it--no having to pick up stitches on the heel flap. I hate picking up stitches. The yarn is some green Australian wool from my stash, plus bits of Knit-Picks yarn I'd Kool-Aid dyed (grape and black cherry). They exactly fit my size 5 1/2 feet, so they should be good for an older kid. Which is perfect, because they're especially needing things for 7-14 year olds. I hope to have time for another hat and a vest before the October deadline.
