New winter hat

I've always had a hard time with hats.  I just think I look ugly in them... this being a cold, nasty winter I thought the answer might be to wear a pretty hat, so no one will look at me just the hat.

The yarn is spun on my Ashford Traveller spinning wheel, fairly loosly spun to make it nice and soft.  It's made from a naturally brown and white lambs wool.

Then I spent a couple of nights knitting the hat, I love stranded knitting so it was pure joy!  The pattern comes from the book Hats: a knitters dozen.

It's now tried and found true.  Warm, comfy and pocketable.  Just perfect!
