perfect spring project

who can resist the next bit of brilliance from purl: the rochefort chapeau.

knit up in nautical stripes, the designer says it reminds her of springtime-in-paris gene kelly musicals.

and of course, nautical stripes were all over the spring 08 runways.

michael kors, spring 08

the shape of purl's cap reminds me of this floppy knit beanie i've spied on jennifer aniston's noggin in more than one pap snap.

my own take is knitting up nicely in blue sky alpaca silk in the palest shade of peach and a heathery gray-brown that were languishing in my stash.
