Finished the hat

This is the picture of the candy cane cap that I made. It's my first knit project for this year. I think it turned out good. I have no idea who will be getting it right now, so I'm putting it away for the future.
Since I joined a tapestry crochet group on Raverly, I'm thinking of making a tapestry crochet hot pad. I've made two, but I have no idea where I've put them. I think they must be in a box in my closet that has finished projects in it. They were so pretty that I didn't want to use them, and I'd put so much work into them that I didn't want to give them to someone who wouldn't appreciate them. So into the finished projects box they went!
I've also found a great doily that I want to make for Valentines day! It has hearts and pineapples. It would like nice on my coffee table.
I also plan to start my first knitted dishcloth off of the knitting calendar! I think this will be a fun project for me, and I'm hoping that it won't take me a long time to make. I'm a crocheter who knits a little, remember? lol
Guess I need to get off of this computer and start some of these projects. I'm still working on my afghan, but I need to take a break every now and then because the weight of it makes my left hand hurt. It's really pretty though. I've added it on Raverly as a WIP.
Have a great day!

MaryAnn I love that hat, it looks so cute. Is that fringe running up the sides? Which calendar dishcloth are you going to try first? I have made a couple already
