A finished object!

I’ve actually got a completed knitting project to show off! I’m excited cuz those are pretty rare for me, especially with handspun 😉

This was a basic 2×2 rib hat from David’s gorgeous “Fields of Gold” in Merino. This thing is SO soft and warm and I am in absolute love with the colors and striping. I split the top vertically into I think 5 strips so I knew the color repeats would be pretty short.

Here’s a picture of the yarn:

One of my favorite spindles, Greensleeves Lady Barbara, is currently being used to spin up another gorgeous creation from David. We recently did a batt swap and he sent me these amazing batts of 50% Polwarth wool / 25% Silk / 25% New Zealand Possum. Those of you that aren’t aware, the New Zealand Possum is a totally different create than the US Opossum. Their fur is unbelievably soft. This blend is SO nice to spin!

    Beautiful colors! Look at my blog, I’m showing what I wear (knitted) lately as a remedy for the winter time when I’m painting – keep warm, Jeannette!
