What shall I be?

My dear sister in-law gave me this lovely yarn. I'm just tickled, this is the first gift of yarn I have ever received - finally someone gets it - all I really want is yarn. Now the big question is what to make with it. Alissa has called dibs - asking for some sort of a cute hat, so now I'm on a pattern search. It only seems appropriate that Alissa should be the recipient as these are some of her favorite colors. I was immediately struck by the similarity of colors to those in a Georgia O'Keefe style water color that Alissa painted at school.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I've been thinking of something like this or maybe this, but not this.

The title of this post made me think of a board game I used to play when I was a kid. What Shall I Be? the exciting game of career girls. I LOVED this game - it's so funny to me now to see the career options.

Of course now I'm a very liberated homemaker, who loves to knit, sew and bake - you've come a long way baby!
