Show and Tell - Hats

Before I learned to weave I learned to knit just a tiny bit. I plan to learn more knitting in time, just as soon as I have the time, but in the mean time I'm working on my weaving skills. What I made with the knitting was hats. Using some of my hand spun wools and a pattern from Spin-Off magazine, I knit this big baggy thing that didn't much resemble a hat, then with lots of washing in very hot, soapy water with lots of aggitation, then cold rinse, then back to hot wash, etc., the hats were felted down to size and shape. Kind of an interesting process, and no two hats turn out the same.
