Here's the hat that goes with the mittens. I got the pattern from http://sandyfroglegs.blogspot.com/ I like the pattern, it's not too lacy for a man, easy to make, and requires no pompom on the top.

Now I have finally decided what I want to do. I don't like to be hanging around between projects for too long. I'm happier if I have something partially cut out and by the machine, ready for a few seams to be run up whenever there's a moment. Even if I'm on hold on the phone, I can put the phone on speaker and sew something. I've decided to make a bunch of plain old scrappy nine-patches. I cut strips 4 inches wide, join them and then slice into 4 inch sections. I plan to join the patches together to make a lap quilt for donation. I have no idea if I have cut out the right amount of patches, or how big the quilt will end up being.
