A slight knitting detour

Well, those sleeves were boring the heck out of me, so I decided to take a break. I was also being way too altruistic in my knitting, since all four projects I was working on were for other people. I remembered I had this lovely skein from PrettySouthern sitting in my desk drawer (that’s the ready-to-knit-at-a-moment’s-notice stash spot). I pulled it out and decided to cast on a little hat.

I love watching the colors change all the time. This might be the first time I’ve really knit with handspun yarn. Can that be true? Really? It seems absurd, but I’m pretty sure I’m right. It’s wonderfully soft and lofty. Even though the weather is warming up any second now, I thought I should have one more comfortable slouchy hat to get me through the transition.

  1. Those colors are gorgeous! And it looks wonderfully soft, too. It’s always good to take a little time to make something for yourself in the midst of your giving.
