Knowing I had a little more time on my hands, I decided to go ahead and knit myself every spinners wardrobe staple- the handspun hat. After all, I have a little head and I knew it would not take long. I did not use a pattern, I just made a little gauge swatch, measured my head, did a little math and cast on. I tried it on as I went along to figure when I had to start the decreases, then decreased evenly around every other row until I had 8 stitches left. I used the leftover yarn to pick up the earflaps. I used every single inch of the yarn.
It's warm, squishy and just in time for fall!
