Small stuff, definitely.

- I'm finishing up my second pair of socks and have yarn for more... Maybe I'll make a pair for my dad also. (I don't know the size of his foot, so they would have to be tube socks, and to avoid the monotony of stockinette stitch, I'll need to find/create an interesting pattern - I've seen plenty to choose from.)

- I keep thinking I should make Christmas stockings to try out different heel techniques. They should knit up fairly quickly and would fun.

- I also need another winter cap, so that's on my list (no rush).

- Several couples I know will have new babies soon, so booties or small blankets might be nice. (Depends on how quick I could make them.)

Another possibility is to make a shawl for my mother (or a lady friend), but it would have to be a light, lace pattern (knit or crochet). Maybe, maybe not - I figure if it's too warm for me to work on it, it's too warm for her to wear.
