fo-handspun hat
here is my hat i made using my very first handspun. i figured i better knit it up now before i stuff it away somewhere and forget about it! i ran out of yarn and used some lambs pride worsted double stranded to finish it off. on size 11US. its very soft and warm!

thank you everyone! it was so fun to actually make the yarn and knit with it too! i used some lovely chocolate merino from shandeh, and some creamy white from jhenalee. i plyed those together and so the multi-striped look with no effort on my part :D

Hi jeanius80..I love it when people say how soft an item is that they have made and bravo on the handspun aspect! Your images certainly show how digital can distort colour tho as they almost look like two diff items! :-) Very attractive and the yarn around the hairline would look great.
