WIP roll call

I am working on two birthday presents, the recipients of both of which read this blog, so I can't post pics, not even if I warn them not to look, because they'll totally look. Won't you, Katie and Amy? Yeah, I thought so. So instead, here's my soon-to-be Fair Isle hat. The picture's a bit blurry because my hands are shaky this morning. (I need another cup of coffee or six.)



So I'm going to have cheesy retro reindeer marching around my head. The question is, on a dark green hat, should they be dark pink reindeer with white hooves and antlers? Light pink reindeer with dark pink hooves and antlers? White reindeer? Pretty much any combination appeals to me, so I need help. Opinions, anyone?
p.s. the chart comes from my beloved 1000 Great Knitting Motifs. Fantastic if you're interested in colorwork.

I think reindeer should be pink in nature. So, yeah, make pink reindeer. And maybe some crazy genetic mutation will result from it, and Santa will look so cool in his red suit, on the sleigh, the 8 tiny pink reindeer pulling him along...
