Work not in progress Wednesday

I'm going through a phase where I don't want to knit any socks.  I frogged the last two pair I started and I don't want to start the new Club Mac pattern I got this week.    It's not the pattern's fault I don't want to knit it right now.  It's a very nice pattern and I will do it eventually.

I haven't been working on the doubleknit scarf, so there's no progress to report.

I had to buy some needle tips for my interchangeable needles.  Size 13 came closest to getting gauge with the bulky yarn for the Doctor Who knitalong.  It starts on Sunday.  The needle tips are allegedly arriving on Saturday.

Since I was already buying something from Knit Picks, I went off my yarn diet by two balls of DK weight.  I'm going to do a Moone Boy hat.  Moone Boy is something that shows up on PBS occasionally and I think BBC America too.  It's about a boy of about 13 who has an imaginary friend.  They both wear this red/white/black Fair Isle hat with a pompom.  Some clever person has created a pattern for it and is offering it for free.

Right now I think I'm going to start a 10-stitch blanket and use up some of my fingering stash that doesn't seem to want to be socks.
