Finished Object Friday... second finished object of the year!  I finished the Husband's Jacques Cousteau hat [Ravelry] Wednesday night. Here's what it looks like:

He's happy with it and wore it this morning. Yay! I plan on making a couple of hats for Halos of Hope, but I think I'll wait a couple of days before starting them. After knitting on the Cousteau hat for most of last weekend, I want to work on a different kind of knitting for a bit.

Up this weekend: I need to catch up with some of the chores that we missed last weekend. I seriously need to vacuum before the cat hair takes over the world!

I have a little clean up to do in the studio, too.  There are stray knitting needles and skeins of yarn that need to be put away. I need to vacuum in there, too, but it's mostly stray threads and fiber.

After that, I plan on working on the mermaid. I'd like to finish beading her tail,  but we'll see how far I get!
