New FO's

I finished spinning the cranberry bog roving that I bought at SAFF from Cloverleaf Farms. I ended up with about 850 yards of lace/sport weight yarn. I'm going to look through my book of lace shawls for a possible pattern.

I'm now spinning the blue merino/seacell I bought from Creatively Dyed at SAFF. (see second picture in previous post) I have almost half of it spun up. I also finally blocked some corriedale that I spun about a month ago. It's cobalt and dark blue plied together in a heavy worsted weight, not quite chunky yarn.

And last, but definitely not least, my second Habitat hat by Brooklyn Tweed.

The first one was a little small for me, so I gave it to Brett. He luckily wears a little smaller size than I do and I can't wear a tight hat or it will give me a headache, so it went to someone who I know will appreciate a nice knitted hat. This one I went up one needle size. The yarn is Cascade 220 Paints that I bought at Hill County Weavers in Austin, Texas.

Another great pattern from Jared Flood.
