My DH has been laid up for 2 weeks. He had a total hip replacement on Dec 2, and sent home on Dec 5th. Phew. Anyhoo, he is up and then down, but mostly his progress is on the UP side!
In the meantime, I have 2 sweater projects ready for blocking, but no energy to do it! So, in between fetching and running, I've taken to knitting hats! I do love hats, and finished 3 hats in the past week. They are really one night hats! Nice and easy to concentrate! And 'sides...I really need them! One of them matches a scarf that I knitted with stash yarn this summer. Had a bit more left over!
Here is JENNY CLOCHE (yeah, the 5th time I've knit it!)

Here is my 2nd "Unoriginal Hat". (A free pattern by Stephanie Pearl-McFee)
And here is my newest hat pattern, Woven Braid Ski Hat by Cheryl Beckerich! (It's a $5 Ravelry download) The pattern called for NORO "Iro" yarn, but I used NORO "Silk Garden" and it worked out fine! Not as thick as you might want for skiing, but I don't ski anyway! But it fits great!
The top of the hat:
With my matching scarf!
