I am making a New Year's resolution to post on my blog at least once per week. I will be updating the projects that I complete as well as other fun stuff. Here are three hats that I just recently made.
The first one is modeled by my daughter, Julia. It is made of handspun Shetland wool in moorit, handspun grey Romney, and tufts of hand dyed BFL/BL cross. It was fun to knit and I love spinning naturally colored wool.
This hat is knit using the handspun grey Romney and a commercially made varigated yarn (Noro Kureyon). I like the look of this one. It has a great shape and wears well.
This last hat is knit with a handspun mix of wool and silk in both blue and pink. The fuzzy yarn is a commercially produced nylon fiber. Buddha makes a great model!
I have been so obsessed with spinning that I have only recently begun knitting the yarn into a finished product. It is great fun designing my own hats.
Soon I will finally have my website finished and I will offer handspun yarn and hats for sale, as well as my jewelry.
