Knit Spin spinspin.......

I adore my job. Today I spent finishing hat #3, then spinning 8 skeins!
All skeins are for a shop update-- which I plan to do tomorrow.

Here are some teaser shots of the HAT. No name yet. Ideas?

It was inspired by a Free People hat from a few years ago and will be available here on the blog for free! Looks best when knit from a painted yarn (in my opinion).
Pattern is almost done, just some technicalities and wordsmithing to do.

Hat #1 Knit by Ruth from painted alpaca.

Hat #2 Knit by me from Cascade 220 Heather~
Hat #3 Knit by me from my handpainted alpaca, Selective Dementia.Now my back hurts and I plan to hit the couch. hard. with my butt.
And swatch for my next sweater endeavor. More on that later.
