Handspun hat
It has been quite a while since I posted here. I have been busy learning to spin! I have yet to become a good knitter. But I wanted to share a photo of my very first handspun, hand dyed and knitted hat!
The hat does not slope, its just standing at an odd angle for the photo :D

Great colors!

With yarn like that, simple knitting projects show them off best anyway

Thanks all :D

Actually the color was a mistake. I used dylon dyes in purple from walmart. I did not want to felt the yarn using their "stir often" technique. So I put the dye mix with the yarn in the microwave.
Fortunately the dye seperated into different colors and settled on the yarn in an unpredictable way. I love the color! I have not tried to duplicate the result.
