This past Christmas, my sister asked for a hat. I finally finished it yesterday. It's Wool-Ease, 100 stitches on US#6, 2x2 ribbing with four evenly-spaced rows of cables.
I've been working on the shawl and on a new version of the Greenery Hat. There seem to be two things about the original pattern that need tweaking: the gauge (too tight) and the height (conehead!). The new pattern will have slightly less-chunky cables and a smaller repeat so it'll be easier to add or subtract a section as necessary, and the crown decreases will be worked a little less gradually.
So, for those keeping score, the patterns in progress are:
-Greenery Hat v.2
-Secret Gloves (that might be submitted to Knitty in a few months, so I can't really talk about them)
My vacation starts in 19 days. It's not nearly soon enough, and won't last nearly long enough, but it'll be wonderful.
