FO Messy Bun Hat

Project Details:
A friend really wanted one of these messy buns hat.  I do love to knit for folks when they really want something - so I had no issues doing it.  Fast knit.  Started on March 18th and finished on the 19th.  I used a bulky alpaca yarn (which is really soft).  Now to ship it!

FO First Ever Handspun Sweater

Project Details:
I started this project on August 1st 2016 and finished on March 14th.  I picked it up and put it down.  I frogged and started over.  I didn't like the neck on the original pattern and re-made it.  I tried to take into consideration how this was going to drape (since it is handspun 60% alpaca and 40% silk).  I knit it a bit shorter than I would normal and blocked it to pull the lace pattern out.

I am loving the weight and feel of this.  I'm still trying to decide if I want a button at the top or just let it fall open or a pin.  Ideas?

FO More Handspun

This was 4 oz of silk, merino, bamboo blend.  Came out to be 260 yards of worsted weight.  I'm thinking a hat for my kiddo!
