I have been making hats.  Many, many hats.

This one is a favourite.

It is the wool I like, the way I spun it.

We washed the raw wool last year.  I didn't get around to carding it (I only have hand carders).

I decided to just spin it, uncarded & I like the effect.  Little bits curl off the strands.  It looks almost like a sheep skin.

Speaking of sheepskins check out how Kat loves this one.

She sucks & kneads it, purring so loud.


The fibre was given to me by a friend, she got it from a local farm.

More hats to come!


  1. Your little guy is adorable - and he looks SO MUCH like your oldest in the photo 5 up from the bottom. I thought it was him for just a micro second.

  2. Wonderful cozy hats. And I love his little impish grin!
