Men's newsboy...

I have a friend who wants a newsboy cap like the one I originally made. And I thought it looked too girly...but he assures me if wont if i use more subdued, manly colors. He mentioned brown. And I like brown...but what else can i do. He said to make it funky......*shrugs shoulders* My original newsboy is back in my blog, though I'm not sure how far back.

I'm trying two shades of brown and a handpainted thin yarn I have which is brown and blues. Anyone have any suggestions?

An update?

My goodness. I haven't updated this thing in eons. I will try to do better....

Some recent knitting.......I made my sister and dad quick hats. I took my hand-spun and added it with some lambs pride gold and fushia. I think it came out really pretty cool. The dad version was much less exciting. I used a Rowan biggee yarn (a blue/black/grey mixture) for some of it but I didn't have enough and alternated between some slate blue lambs pride chunky.

I knit some wrist bands....in tribute to my favorite band ever. Marah. The other says "Dave HOT"....private sorta joke :) I shoulda done Dave's hot. And I lost it anyway. :/ I made a few and gave them away. I'll be making more.
