Newbies

I've been commissioned by a friend to knit a hat for both he and his girlfriend. He took me to the yarn store on Saturday and we frolicked in the skeins of glory for a long time.

This is what we left with:

cascade
A hank of Cascade 220 in a gorgeous dark charcoal grey for his.

pink noro
A skein of delicious pink and purple Noro Silk garden for her hat.

encore
And some Plymouth Encore Chunky in this nice deep brown with blue flecks for me. (My treat for knitting him things.)

Mmmm yarn!!!!!! How nice to get some bonus yarn too. I havent been to a yarn store in forever. What patterns are you using for the hats? (I assume the same pattern for the noro that you used for your silk garden hat?)

I think I'm just going to use my generic simple hat formula for both. I want to do the swirly decreases for this Silk Garden hat.
