I've got 3 pleas for help. 

#1:  In the stapler scene in the movie Two Weeks Notice (Sandra Bullock/Hugh Grant), Sandra's wearing this brown headband that looks like it has eyelets.  I'm sorry I can't find a pic of it, it's almost the same color as her hair so it doesn't show up in screencaps.  Anyway, I'm really not opposed to making my own pattern, but I'd absolutely love it if someone could point me to a similar pattern.

#2:  I've got 3 skeins of Manos Del Uruguay Cotton Stria in the off-white color.  It's awesome, it's soft, I love the color, but I haven't got a clue what to do with it.  It's 348 yards worth, I believe.  It's cotton, so I don't want winter wear.  I'm thinking either a pillow or a capelet-type thing, but I'm having trouble finding patterns that use approximately the yardage I have.  I've glanced through the Knitting Pattern Directory, but there's just too many patterns to go through when you're working with dial-up.  So do you guys have any suggestions?

#3:  In the same vein as #2, I went crazy and bought 5 skeins of Caron Simply Soft Quick (it's the bulky one) in berry blue.  I think they're something like 70-90 yards each.  I've been trying to figure out what to do with it for 5 months.  Haven't got a clue.  Again, I would love any pattern suggestions.  I'm pretty much open to anything. 

Thank you so much for any help, it is greatly appreciated.

For #2, have you thought of the Anthropologie inspired capelet? Not sure if your yarn is a bulky weight or a thin, but I think you'd have enough for one in any case.

for 3 - I use Simply Soft for kid stuff a lot - I actually just finished a baby hat with bunny ears in the same color (berry blue) that you have. I've never used the bulky version of it, but I bet it'd still be great for kid stuff. Maybe a baby blanket, or a teddy bear? not sure about yardage on either of those things, but...I'm sure you could figure it out.  Tongue

We are dolls, they seem to say, but don't play with us. We bite.

I second the Anthropology Inspired Capelet That is the link directly to the PDF file (just a warning since you are on dial up)
