Finishing up past work

So I was riffling through my ginormous stash of yarn today, looking for a beige ball or two to make a cover for my Mum-in-Law's couch, when I came across 3 or 4 nearly-finished projects.  One is a blue sweater with cables that I had started for my firstborn, and he outgrew it before I finished.  I have one sleeve to make and then make it up.  I'll sell that one, as it doesn't really have any sentimental significance.  I also saw a baby hat for my second born.  Again, never worn, so I'll sell that too.  It's a lovely light green color, with earflaps.  I am going bind off a lovely forest green capelet I had started ages ago, and I just discovered.  It's just reaches the elbows, which is the perfect length for those autumn evenings sipping coffee on the gallery, or for taking out to a ball game late at night, when the weather is a bit cooler.  The final item, I have honestly no idea what I could use it as.  It was originally a blanket, but it was one of my first attempts, way back in the day, and I simply did a bind off, and let it be.  So I'll have to think on that one, because it's a toughy.  I'll let you know... It might turn out to be a great placemat!
