Two things...

One... my kitty being adorable, sleeping in the laundry...



Two... I've spun a lot of the stuff I've bought recently, in particular that stuff that I bought for Jared and Jensen's hats.

I need help choosing now. I think that the gray for Jared's is out. The gray that I got, stupidly, is too coarse.

For Jared's I was thinking the green, and for Jensen's the blue-gray. I need help choosing what will go with it. I've got natural black, natural brown and natural white (which is more of a slightly off-white). I'm not sure if it will be for the stripes or for the main color. But let me know what you think...







For further visualization, these are some of the patterns that I'm considering using... The Chocolate and green ribbed hat, the 1x1 Rib Hat, the Watch Cap, and the Simple Ribbed Cap. There are others that don't have pictures. But these are basically the two types, those with fold-up brims and those without. Which do you prefer? Which do you think the boys would prefer? Either way, they will have stripes.

I'm also thinking of making one for Sandy, Jared's fiancee, just because... For her, I'm thinking something with cables... maybe in white? 'Cause wouldn't she look amazing (like she doesn't already!) in a white cabled stocking cap? Something like Anna of Green Cables maybe... Haven't really started looking for patterns for her yet...

That's all... *hugs everyone*

I agree. :P

Maybe the brown with the green or the white with the green? And maybe the black with the blue-gray? Mr. Ackles looks very much like a blue or gray sort of fellow, but people can surprise you; at the same time, Mr. Padalecki seems more an earth colors kind of guy. Miss Sandy, though, I honestly couldn't say, though white cables make just about everyone look cute. Whatever you decide, lucky them!

I took all the yarn to the convention and was asking some friends there about it. They all seemed to think the black and green for Jared and then for Jensen just the blue-gray. Like with this pattern: http://www.figandplum.com/archives/000021.html So I think that's what I'm going to do.

For Sandy, someone suggested that maybe instead of a stocking type cap, a beret instead, so I'm thinking of going in that direction perhaps, but I haven't started looking at patterns yet, so the cables are still a possibility as well...
