I spun and knit a hat…

This is the second hat I’ve made with my handspun yarn and it’s incredibly soft. Handspun yarn FinnAlpaca_1 3.18.16

I knit this hat using the Finn/Alpaca blend that I spun a few months ago. See, the above picture?

This past Thursday, I started knitting this hat and I completed it the very next day.

See! I must say that I’m thrilled with how it looks. The first hat, that I knitted from my handspun yarn was knit early last week. I used some of my first handspun yarn to create that hat.

Last week, my nephew visited us. He came Tuesday and went back home yesterday (Saturday). We enjoyed his visit.

I made much more food than normal. My 13 year old daughter has a lot of energy, add in my nine year old nephew and boy does it get interesting! God blessed us with wonderful weather and so we spent a lot of time outdoors.

One evening… we even caught fireflies.

Here’s hoping you all are taking time to celebrate life!

    Thanks! I love how it turned out. I’ve put it in my completed items storage bin. It’s stay there until it tells me who it should go too. That bin smells like lavender because of the essential oil sachets that I’ve added.

    Indeed it is. It’s raining here, but I do believe we’ll sit outside on the porch. This hat is super soft and has a nice halo. 😍
