Knitting Temptaions

I have tons to show you and to talk about since the holidays have come and gone, but I am going to make a quick thing of it today.

Just to get it out of my system, I want to share two hats that are begging to be on my needles.

The tam of Knitty's "Three Tams" fame has been calling to me since the day it was unveiled, but I kept talking myself out of putting it into my yarn budget. The urgency is nearly overwhelming now that I have discovered a forgotten ball of purple toned Silk Garden that would go ever so nicely with some light purple or cream Lamb's Pride left over from holiday knitting.

The second hat that is making my busy fingers itch is this Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap. I found it through a Craftster post in which a girl added thick braids of the tips to satisfy her desire for magenta hair. Sharing the same yang for technicolor hair, I quickly fell for this cap. The inspiration knitter used the new silk blend Manos which may also end up needing to be my yarn of choice as well.

Why am I resisting starting these two caps? My goal (not New Years' resolution) is to finish the started objects that were begun in the last two months, especially my class samples. I have been doing okay thus far. These two make it hard to stay steadfast.
