Hat Overload

I am sick of knitting hats.
It seems like everything I knit for my upcoming show is a hat.  That needs to stop.
So, I’m focusing on other types of projects, such as notebook covers and coffee cup sleeves, stuff like that.  Oh, and trinket bags.  Just not hats.
I’ll probably knit a chunky scarf or two in the interim, as well.  I have a pretty lace knit one in Berocco Chunky, (lace again!) and have yarn for a ruffly type scarf, too, in a nice acrylic, mohair, and wool blend.  I think its Katia yarn.  Park Avenue, or something like that.
If I don’t sell all those hats, I do have a good use for them.  I’ll take them to the local cancer center and donate them for cancer patients to use as chemo caps.  I’ve done that before, and they were well received. 
In the meantime, though, no more hats.  At least not for a while.

The Small Stuff

My little poll on the right hand side there seems to point overwhelmingly, though votes were few, to catching up on small stuff.  And I have been.  Here’s what I’ve caught up on:  I’ve finished a baby hammock prop for a friend and fellow photographer, a pair of fingerless mitts for a person from where I work, and a hat for a Christmas present. 
What I need to do yet:  Finish another pair of mitts for another person at work (one mitt is done, and I am working on the second), a knit backpack which is near finished, and a scarf for another present. 
I’m chugging along. I’m going to focus on Christmas now, since it is the beginning of November…ALREADY.  Where did this year go? 
I’m going to keep working on the small stuff because I have a lot of ideas and much to do.
