Hey folks of craftster--it's been a while.

I've been working on knitting up some of my handspun yarns into chunky, slouchy, colorful hats. It's a super simple pattern (start on double pointed needles with eight stitches, increase until satisfied, keep going on circulars until the ribbing, rib, cast off, bam). For some of these, like the light pink one on the far right, I also used some recycled dyed yarn from old sweaters.

Encouragement? Critiques?

Wow! Recycled sweaters? That's crazy! Do you spin your yarn yourself or just dye it? I want cows and chickens, so my bf wants sheep, so I'm going to have to learn how to spin it eventually.

Thanks, jexxican. I always admire your stuff over on the spinning board!

TkRainy: I dye and spin the wool all myself. There's a farm near me that raises llamas and Shetland sheep, and I get their fleece right from the source (though I order some other types of fiber from elsewhere, occasionally). The process is pretty involved, with washing, dyeing, and carding--but it's also super rewarding. I want sheep someday myself!
