Finished up the Hat

And I love it! I love bright clear colors, and I love jewel tones—though I admit, I tend to the cool blues and purples and emerald greens more often than these hot colors. I stuffed the reverse stocking knit at the top and brim of the hat with some roving, and added the two small pompoms, connected by a multi color braid.. and now its finished. Won't this be just the thing to brighten up a dark winters day?

The yarn is crying, and trying to insist, I need to make some fingerless gloves to match, RIGHT NOW—but I am not listening. I already have 3 (or is it 4?) pairs of fingerless gloves, and matching ones can wait!

Right now, I have 3 projects on needles, a fourth planned, and so many things I want to knit!

First up, (putting aside the UFO sock and turquoise summery top) are some THINK PINK projects.

First (simple, simple) are some cup holders—and the directions to make them, second, some double knit pot holders, also in pink,
Second, because my gingham double knit potholder has suddenly become a Ravelry success, real directions on making one. (Previously, I have written a recipe, not a pattern.)

And none of this will get done, if I don't get off the computer, and pick up needles!
