chemo caps

I just found out today that one of my aunties has lung cancer. She has never smoked, but apparently lung cancer is also known as Asian women's cancer? At least that is what the doctor told her. She will be going through chemo treatment, so I am planning to knit her a couple chemo caps out of baby soft cotton and perhaps chenille? Is chenille a good yarn for these caps?

I'm looking at these patterns currently:

very cute, I'm thinking of doing this one in chenille

and then one of these three in cotton for summer wearing:

one
two
three

In happier news, Evan and I are closer to finding the location of our wedding/reception. We've narrowed it down to two choices. One is a beautiful private estate in Sonoma that nestled in the middle of lush grape vines! The other is a local historical mansion located at a country club near my parents' house surrounded by the Berkeley hills. Both are gorgeous locations, and we have a hold on the July 7th date (7/7/07) at each. So we should decide after this weekend with more budget analyses. Pictures to come!

Cashsoft is oh so squishy. I suspect any yarn that's soft will be good =)

sorry to hear about your auntie. so nice and thoughtful of you to knit some chemo caps for her.
you should just do the itch factor. hold yarn up to neck and rub for 2 minutes. if your neck gets irritated, then it's a no.

Sorry to hear about your aunt. I like the Shedir hat the most. If you're going to do wool, I'd do baby wool, something really soft.
