Children's hats for Homeless Coalition

I have been happily knitting away on a bunch of hats for the little kids in our family as well as some for the Homeless Coalition.  Once I get started on them, they just seem to knit themselves and they make such wonderful little head warmers.  I have an entire basket of earflap hats and now I have several caps.  I have been using acrylic yarn for these, as I never have the opportunity to let the recipients know they can't go in the washer and dryer like a store bought hat.

Also, just finished a lace shawl using mohair I purchased at the Wi Sheep and Wool Festival. It's made using all knit stitch, but I just liked it's simplicity when I saw it completed at the vendors booth.
I'm hoping to use some of my roving to make a braided rug this winter, cross your fingers for me that I can get enough of the colors I want to get it done.   My biggest problem is that when I get my hands on the softer wool, I just can't seem to convince myself that they should be put into a rug!  :D  I had thought that a few nice braided chair pads would be a lovely addition to my  chairs.  So many choices and so little time to make it all happen.
TaTa for now............
