Knitting Update - April Finishes

I finished these a week or so ago.  They are a 'by request' item for a friend of a friend: a young gal who is currently undergoing cancer treatment.  I made this pattern last Nov/Dec on my trip to Mexico and really enjoyed it (see here.). 

Pattern: Seedy Squares from Big Book of Socks by Kathleen Taylor
Yarn:  KnitPicks Stroll in Summer Blooms Tonal
#1 circulars
CO 60 sts

Leaf-Lace Hat - 101 One Skein Wonders

#5 needles (I went up one size from the recommended)
Jitterbug yarn - I used less than the 50g called for. Probably closer to 35g (I forgot to weigh the hat). 
Another fun pattern, but really need to watch those stitches!  Pictured is the second go at this hat - first time ended up being off by one stitch and it threw off the decreases.  A very quick weekend project.  This went to a friend for her (belated) birthday.
