I have just finished a baby blanket and I'm finishing up a stacking toy.

No more friends pregnant (yes, one, but she doesn't want anything crocheted), so it's about time I make something for myself. I have been drooling on snoods for a while now, and I found this great pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snood-tastic
I cannot wait to start making one for myself.

But, I cannot help but wondering... Will the yarn make a difference? I mean, I normally take cotton for children's toys and blankets, or yarn that its washable at a slightly higher temperature. When talkings about snoods, I think about static electricty. It's something that I'd like to avoid in something that I'll put on my head. Or is it just unavoidable?

I have some yarn that I bought last year (clearance, yay!) and I think it's a synthetic cotton mix. I just don't want firebolts in my hair  Tongue.

I would use an acrylic yarn (stay away from wool or alpaca) then I would scotch guard it or spray with with hairspray (you don't been a lot, use they aerisole (sp?) kind not pump. I hope this helps!
