I'll be making a Shroom hat, since she really liked mine. I'll also be making her the Mille Colori Big Cowl:

And some sort of mittens. I haven't decided what I'm doing with that yet. I decided to use Berroco Campus as the yarn, as it's soft, bulky and comes in lovely earth tones, which is what she requested. I'll post some pix as soon as it comes in, as I had to order it from Webs.
I also need to make a hat/scarf/gloves set for the friend that referred this commission to me. She wants things in shades of purple, and quite possibly cashmere. So that should be a blast.
I also kinda broke my yarn diet, and got myself a little treat last night. I have planned on making Ysolda's Snapdragon Tam and Fliptops for a while for myself (in the same colors - madelinetosh gilded - as the picture.)

So I purchased a couple of skeins of Mal Silky Merino to make myself a scarf/cowl to match/contrast. It's the Loro Barranquero colorway:
That's the gilded in the middle and the loro barranqueno on either side. We'll see how it looks. If I make a sixth honey cowl, I might be able to share it with Bruce. (can you hear the insanity starting to set in?)
And I kinda had to spoil the surprise for Bruce about his mittens, since I needed him to try them on. I forget how big men's hands can be. So he tried them on last night, and I realized I'm going to have to rip back and put in a wider thumb gusset. Not such a problem, as the mittens are made from bulky wool and knit up super fast.
(on a side note, the new blogger is driving me INSANE. It is changing all of my links in the post from wherever I linked them, to blogger.com. I just went in and relinked for the third fricken time this morning. If you have this problem, I apologize. It is also reformatting myposts like crazy. I may be switching to livejournal or something soon. Oy)
