This is a totally gorgeous hat, and I want to make it!  (As if I needed another hat...maybe I'll give it to someone deserving.)

I really want to do this one BADLY!   I went out and bought yarn for it when I saw it in the Fall Knits; I believe it was fall...  Anyway, I hope this one wins because I'm READY!  Are you ready? ;D

This is my favorite.  Can it be done in double-layer knitting?

Love this selection!

Yes, this one please, and can we have plenty of time in which to complete it?   I have never knitted fair isle before and think that this project would be neither too big, nor too small and fiddly to tackle while I am learning.'

Perfect hat for holiday giving.  Even enough time to do a couple. Since our winters are mild I'm thinking of doing it in cotton for a longer wearing period.

I really think this is a great selection.  Oh, ok, I'll whine "Pleaseeeee can we do this onnnnneee?"
