Hat for the Small-Headed

Well, I finished the Unoriginal Hat by Yarn Harlot. It looks good but it's way too small for the intended recipient. It's not only smaller in circumference than it needs to be, it's also too short. It barely comes to the top of my ears when I stuff my big head into it. I think it would be annoyingly snug on a bald head and lead to skin irritation and pain. I'm trying to decide if I want to try it again with another repeat added or not. It was a pretty easy hat to knit and it knit up quickly.

Knitting plan for New Year's Day

Well, I thought about working on either the Swan Lake Stole or my lonely remaining sock. There's a hitch in this plan. I have a bad cold at the moment and I feel pretty crummy. My head hurts, my throat hurts and there is an ocean of goo running from somewhere in my head down into my stomach, which my stomach doesn't particularly appreciate. The end result is that I'm fussy and not particularly tuned in to details. Obviously that means the stole is a bad choice of things to work on today. I'm not sure the sock would be any better a choice. What I really need is some sort of mindless garter stitch monstrosity. Of course, that would probably be too boring and merely contribute to the fussiness. Ugh. I hate being sick, especially when it's a holiday. I don't like to waste my holidays like that. I may end up playing computer games for most of the afternoon. That's a semi-mindless activity.
