What should I knit next?

Woo HOOO!!!  I finished sewing in the ends of Sandy's sweater on Wednesday, and gave it to her on the same day.  Hopefully I'll have a picture of Sandy wearing the sweater to show and tell!

Here is the finished sweater (sans Sandy).

Seems like I'm on a roll with cabled sweaters. But you know what I want to knit next?  (Well, other than the hat I started this morning.  It's getting cold and I need a new hat.)  I am itching to make a top-down, seamless, boring old in-the-round sweater for me, in some kind of brown yarn. NO patterning, NO bright colors, NO sewing of sleeves!!  Just plain stockinette around and around and around.  I so need a break from having to think!!!

I'm thinking of making Ingenue or Pink from Wendy Bernard's Custom Knits.  Hum.. in brown?  Hum....

Fiscal Year End

My company's fiscal year ends on Oct 31st and this is always the busiest time of year for us.  For the past 2 weeks I've been hit with one issue after another.  And of course all has to be resolved YESTERDAY and all are CRITICAL!!!  Meanwhile my manager is also asking how my "regular" projects are going.  Fun.

But last weekend I did have dinner with my brother, his wife, and his very cute baby boy.  My mom and step-dad (that sounds weird.... we usually just call him Hans) were also with us.  I finished adding buttons on to Mikey's jacket and here he proudly shows it off:
