Funky hat

I came across this gorgeous hat while trawling blogs the other day. Isn't it fab? I've bought some yarn for it and will be making it for this autumn for a couple of people. Fun huh?

Here's the pattern if anyone else wants to give it a go.

A project for the caravan me thinks - I like easy patterns.

Mystery Stole

I have signed up to knit a mystery stole. This is my first venture into lace knitting so wish me luck!

My first big decision is which colour? The instructions say:
"The colors I recommend for this stole are solid, earthy, non-vibrant, non-variegated, non-fuzzy. ... This stole design and theme are best suited for black, white, pink, grey, green, etc. as long as it is not a primary, bright vibrant color. The only exception to this is if you were able to use a silver or gold yarn of some kind. Regardless, be sure to pick something you like and I’m sure the stole will be beautiful."

So - I have found a supplier of a suitable yarn but now need to choose my colour... Here are some pics - please let me know what you think.
