Finally after much delay on my part, I've completed the tip of the tam pattern. Many thanks to Ball and Skein for her yarn and BySarah for her test knitting.
I'm also working on a hand spun hand knitted hat for charity which I've enjoyed making throughout the process. I began with 3 0z of lovely Coopworth from Wintechog Hill Farm in CT. that Sandi provided to our guild. The locks barely needed a flick and they were open and ready for a quick spin. What a joy to spin. Next the knitting process fostered my delight. Spinning from the lock from butt to tip produced a wonderful worsted yarn with striations of natural color in the yarn.........grays and browns.I'll post some pics of the finished hat soon.
Are you a process oriented spinner or knitter?
