First Handspun Projects

For my first handspun yarn I wanted something to really show off the yarn. Because of the variance in weight I suspected that something very basic would probably be best.

I love how this hat came out. The color progression / spiral is lovely and the slouch feels perfect. I was thrilled that I still had more yarn to play with afterward.

The first picture shows a double mobius headband that I did. I found the construction very interesting and I look forward to doing something like that again. It also is the best picture I’ve gotten of the purple in my hair! Over 2 years of trying and it’s the first time it’s been very visible in pictures. The second picture is a basic eyelet headband. I love how they both show the different colors. Working with my very own handspun was fantastic!

    Hand spun? Really? You did the yard yourself? What did you spin the yarn on? A wheel or drop spindle? Cool!!!
