I *love* surprises like those! And not just because it's my knitting modus operandi either. (Although it totally is.) The socks are so happy-making! And the hat will make someone's head very happy, too, and I'm sure the right recipient will love that color. Can't wait to see what you do next!
Cheerful socks! Happy dance, happy dance!And someone's going to be happy over that hat, too.
