Getting through the pile

A while back I decided to try to start knitting through my handspun stash and I'm finally making a dent.  The other thing I've had a hankering for is knitting hats.   I'm not really sure why because I'm not a big hat person but for some reason I have this craving for hats.  Here's the latest:
You can't see it so well but there is a cabled band around the bottom edge.  The advantage of this, which I feel is going to pay off later, is the double thickness of cushy BFL around my ears.

There really is just not enough time to do everything but this is where I'm at on my bobbin lace bookmark:
Some of it has been a little more successful than others but I think it will be pretty.  If I ever get it finished, that is.  I've got a couple of days off coming up so maybe I can get this finished up and make a dent in my yardage piece.  I'm up to 22 inches on that, I think.  Or is it 24.  But do you think I can find a tape measure?  When you only own 15 tape measures, you can't expect to always be able to put your hand on one. 

I'm going hunting...
