Finally the hat is finished

>I have finally finished my friends hat. It was supposed to be a christmas present but I ran out of time. I have tried five different patterns and kept going wrong and was beginning to despair of ever knitting her one when I discovered the Edge of Lace Hat from 101 Designer One Skein Wonders.
I used Rowan Pure Wool DK and normally I would have knitted this in an evening but due to the hysterectomy I’m not up to full speed yet.
I shall post a photo once I’ve given it to the friend in question.
I have a lot of WIPs 10 to be exact and am in a bit of a dilemma. Three of these are blankets. I have a bad case of startitus but really feel I should finish at least one of the WIPs. So do I cast on a small project like socks or mittens and do these inbetween the larger projects or do I just get on with it and finish one of the garments.
I was doing really well with Vivienne the cover knit from Precious . I finally finished the body and was looking forward to knitting the sleeves and finishing it, but for some reason I had it in my head that they were short sleeves. They’re not they’re long stocking stitch sleeves in 4ply . This means I have kind of stalled on this project. I am in the mood for starting the second side of Dominika so I think I may start this.
I have also partially decided to destash some of my Rowan Cocoon because as much as I love this yarn it moults for the first few times you wear it and it drives me and OH potty. I may of course use it all and knit lots of scarves and hats ready for christmas and I still want to knit Mabel from Rowan Winter Kids for each of my nieces so We shall see. Decisive as usual!
