Fall Knitting

I have been doing plenty of "stealth" knitting that is now under deadline. Don't want to publish pictures as of yet (after Christmas) of those items on the needles, but have completed a few baby hats for new parents. I have another baby hat coming up before Christmas. I am under serious deadline knitting strain! People! Please don't bring forth new children this close to the holidays!!!!
Bunny Ears hat from Itty Bitty Hats. They look more like bear ears to me. But, cute, cute, cute. I have no little ones and these hats are so hard to part with. But, must admit, when mamas open them up in delight, giving them away is worthwhile. (Boots loves the knitting, but appears to be ready to attack!)
Rainbow Marley, again from Itty Bitty Hats by Susan B. Anderson: Hmmm, no cat in picture... Heather Hoodie Vest which I just love! It is WARM! Did not enjoy the big needle, bulky yarn knitting of cables, but adore the product. Chose the buttons this summer in a little shop in Oregon, IL called "Stitches in Time" which carries yarn and quilting items (as well as some fabulous buttons). My HHV languished over the summer as I don't like wool sitting in my lap in the heat of summer (even whilst sitting in air conditioning). Quickly finished it up as soon as fall temperatures warranted a yummy warm vest, which this indeed is. (Again, no pictures of kitties on knitting. Must explore this trend.
