Matt's new hat
Matt is such a Lucky because his lovely wife, (that would be me) knit him a very warm hat from her hand spun yarn. The Watch Cap is his favorite kind of hat because it is a very long hat, that is cuffed up , which keeps the ears extra warm. You need a very warm hat here in South Dakota in the winter time. I have some brown Merino wool that I spun into a single, then I spun some Coopworth wool/angora that I also spun into a single. Then I plied the two together to get a very warm worsted weight wool yarn. Then I knit a simple 2 x 2 rib Watch Cap for Matt. Now he is one happy guy!!!
