First, I worked up a headband. It was 3 repeats of Diamond Medallion Panel lace pattern from this book. Then 10 rows of 2x1 rib, then 1x1 rib. It used all but a few yards of the yarn and I am thrilled. I think of it as my Gypsy headband.
Then, still being fueled by instant gratification, I worked up this little hat.
