Vacation from knitting

My second Scarefest sock was a fail, as is the picture of it:
It's supposed to be ivy climbing up a brick wall. The ivy was fine. I did something squirrelly with the brick pattern and it didn't work out correctly. The foot would've been enormous. I would never have worn the socks if I finished them. I chose to chuck them in the frog pond and move on to something else.

The something else was this set of Doctor Who-inspired little shop signs. I'm going to redo the TARDIS one, but am satisfied with the rest. The plan is to do a bunch of embroidered pieces and put them together with fabric patches and make a patchwork pillow.

My Doctor Who swap person gifted me a mitten pattern called Starry Night. I'm going to try that next.
