Hat and Socks
I finished a hat out of some handspun last week. It is Dyewishous merino and the pattern is the Simple Slouchy hat that I have now knit six times and will still probably knit again because I enjoy it so much.
I usually only have one pair of socks on the needles at any one given time but I was wanting something cheery to spin one day and cast on the striping pair. (Yes, I know I had cast that yarn on once before but it had an unfortunate demise in the project it was being knit into.) The pair on the left is the Vanilla Latte socks in the K-State colorway of Kaleidoscope Yarns. The pair on the right is my boring 3/1 ribbing in Desert Vista Dyeworks Neon Spring. Both pairs are being knit on size 0 Hiya Hiya Sharps.
