OK, so I need help deciding what to do with the beautiful yarn my friend Jenny gave me for Christmas. It's 3 skeins of Cascade 220 Quatro in 9440 which is actually a lot brighter in person than it appears on the monitor. It's a very bright pink, with bright purple and green. It's worsted weight, and there's 220 yds (sorry, no metric on the label) per 100g skein. It's enough to make a winter-wear set, especially for little me, but I have LOTS of mittens, although not many hats. I've also been tempted to try making the Pixie Hat from Knit Wit. (If you look up the book on Amazon, then choose to "look inside", it's the blue hat on the back cover. Sorry for no link!). Then I could make matching mittens and a scarf. The question is, am I brave enough to wear a pixie hat? I think I might be. Although this would be one VERY bright pixie hat.

Please, suggestions!

I used my Cascade 220 to make this felted sherpa hat. It turned out great and DH loves it. The pattern makes adult and/or children's sizes.
