A Quickie

Just a quick update on the Golden Beret.  I wish you all could have 'touch-screens' where you could feel how wonderfully squishy this Malabrigo Rios yarn is.  I'd love to put this hat on all of 'those people' who swear they can't wear wool.  I'd Double Dog dare them!

I'm hoping to finish the body tomorrow on this beret and start the decreases.  I cast on 120 stitches and increased to 180 stitches so there's going to be A LOT of decreasing.  Using the Double D decrease I'll have 14 decrease rows with straight knit rows in between.  I'll have to check my row gauge to see how many inches 28 rows equals and then I'll know how high to knit the hat before decreases start.  Don't you just love math!!!
