Here is the handspun hat for my dad’s birthday. The lighter portions contain 100% alpaca from natural tri-colored roving. The brown stripes are wool of an unknown variety. It’s very fuzzy and very warm, but it doesn’t gain high marks for aesthetics.
I made a pair of mittens to go with the baby hat. I’ve not seen babies wear mittens before, and I doubt they are practical, but they were fun to make. I’m going to break out my lucet and try to remember how to make a loss prevention cord. I’ve not used one in a long time, so it may take some practice to get the knack of it.
The current UFO project I’m working on is a pair of cabled socks. The yarn is denim colored handspun that I bought from Dave Daniels several years ago. It’s incredibly soft and springy yarn to work with.
If Steven makes first contact then she transforms into a raving psycho cat. He’s mostly indifferent to her attempts at friendship.
Lately Roxanna has taken to spending most of her time under A1’s bed. I wish I knew what they were thinking. Cheers!
