Tuesday night I knitted a hat for my 7yo. It is a simple rustic warm winter cap.
It is knit from homespun, always special. But this project is a special treasure. I alternated rows of my very first wheel-spun yarn and my son's very first plied yarn. He made it from one strand of spun pencil roving and one strand of fiber he put through a friend's drum carder. Here's a close-up of his spinning:
Luckily, the last few days have been cool enough for Son to model the hat!
