I start a lot of projects, but don't finish many.  The other day I was cold (it is winter here in Brisbane) and sick of not having any winter FOs to wear.  So I grabbed all my grey yarn out of my stash, and knit up a scarf from a strand of each (6 in total) on the thickest needles I own (a whopping 25mm  Shocked).  It only took an hour or two, I stopped when one of the yarns ran out.  So I knitted up a beret (only 4 stranded on 8mms this time) to match, with what was left.  Wanna see?  Of course ya do...
  Please excuse the odd look on my face, it is my cold face I think.
Because I used so many different balls at once, I won't list them all out.  But just about all your favourites are in there.   Cheesy  I got compliments all day for this set, and I didn't take them off because the office was too cold.  I just found another ball of grey yarn, I don't know how I missed it the other day.  I have two partial balls left from the scarf and beret still too.  What do you think, should I make wrist warmers to match?  They'd be pretty chunky even with only 3 strands Undecided

There is a few more pictures and a bit more info on my blog.  it is here  http://missvicki.wordpress.com/2007/06/18/picture-obese/  scroll to bottom, but I should warn you that that post is really pic heavy.

These are beautiful! The color & chunkiness (is that a word?) is perfect. I wish it was cold here. I miss scarves already.

Great idea and it looks great on you! I love the shape if the hat and the ridges. Definitely you should make wrist warmers to match!

Raddd. I love those hats.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

I love the hat! It's extremely cute. How did you do that ribbing, is it reverse stockinette with a knit thrown in or is it fancy? I really like how it pops.
