Green Hat

I've been super busy at work. So busy, that I haven't had the time to show you a WIP (work in progress) which is now a FO (Finished Object).

This is the start of a green hat knit from some handspun fiber purchased at MSW2005. The fiber came in a batt curled up into the cutest shape. I fell in love with all the shades of green, and this was one of the first things I spun from MD that year. The yarn has been sitting in my stash for some time, waiting for a purpose.

I was looking for a project that would require the use of lots of cute little sheep stitch markers. Aren't they sweet? My friend, Barb, made them for all fiber friends at Christmas. I'm such a lucky girl!
And someone who has a birthday coming up will have a nice, warm head this winter!

Hey- wahoo! So good to see the sheep in action, and I love the in-progress hat photo. The color is really true. We missed you at guild, though!

The hat is wonderful! I love the feel of the fabric and the colors. I'm glad the little sheepy could help out too.

W/O leaving the cat out of the bag (grin)I know your DF will love the hat esp since it usually snows when his golf club begins the new season right around his birthday. Thanks for finishing the crown 'cause that's where he needs coverage the most!

What a lovely colour your handspun is! And those little sheepie fellows are too cute.
