Love the cowl and the hat; you make wicked colour choices! I think I would opt for the skiing; I tend to get heat stroke too easily - don't you love the oddities of life where you can do two completely opposite things in the same season!

I am so loving the hat! It reminds me of bubble gum ice cream. You're hurting my brain with the simultaneous snow/swim thing. Ow.

So pretty. I love both!

Sigh. Sunbathing near snow. That's what FRANCE is all about. So jealous! It's just hot and humid and heading quickly for miserable here in Georgia.

I'll be catching up on your blog posts to see how your Lizzie blanket is going. You are probably done by now! I finally figured out Google reader. Duh. Have been missing out on a perfectly fabulous blog-tracking assistant. No longer!

Happy knitting!
