My handspun hat

Dear Knitting Fiends,

I finally made myself a hat, plus I got to use up my favorite handspun. You saw my yarn earlier, it looked all pretty and tie-dyed. I shouldn't have made this hat pattern with it though, or at least I should have changed the gauge. My yarn was thicker than it looked and I really hate insanely tight knitting. My hands were hurting by the time I finished this... but I do really like the dense feel of it.

I rather think it looks like a swimming cap. My husband said it looked "rasta" with my hair hanging out of it. (I think we're too white to use words like rasta without sounding stupid, but I didn't tell him that).

Loopy like always,

Thank you! Although truthfully the best parts of the yarn were already in it before I spun it - the luxurious fiber blend and the yummy colors.
