I have never tried hats but this one and teejtc's may inspire me. Problem is I don't look good in hats but this one may be an exception - because even if I look bad the hat will look fabulous =P

Thanks Andy! Burnt orange and its variations are my current favorites. And the photo doesn't show it well, but there is some "hand dyed" looking variation in the yarn which I love.
