FO Friday: Handspun Hat!

Welcome to another fun filled FO Friday, a lovely warm sunny day in Ontario, Canada.

Just an update, situation with DH has improved somewhat. Downside, his license has been lifted for the present, with no idea when he can drive again. (Law in Cda, you faint and you don’t drive, wise but inconvienient) DH is the only driver in our houehold, so life is a little complicated.  In-laws and parents have been great, his employer/friend has been and absolute brick, could not be more understanding. DH’s boss was scheduled for 14 day vacation, had to cancel plane tickets and reservations. DH felt awful about it, boss said “sh– happens” nothing more said. Well back to todays finished object!

Son's GF Sporting Hat (she's a good sport too!)

Pattern: Handspun Horseshoe cap by Janet Wray (from Spin-off Magazine Fall 2009) Fibre: 80% Merino / 20% Merino from Silver Cloud alpaca

Fuzzy Close-up

Handspun: 2 Ply, singles “S”, ply “Z”, wpi 14

Needles: 3.75mm, 4.5mm

Totally delighted with the butter soft result. Will be entering it in the local Fair.

    First off, I’m so sorry to hear about your husband. I just caught up with what has been going on! I’m so glad to hear he’s doing a little better and what a great boss he has! So awesome.

    The hat is beautiful! You should be sooo proud of it!
