the look

I started a hat yesterday, it's part of Christmas knitting, and it's really got the hadspun look to it. It's 2 different rovings, one that was red and orange and one I called dirty yellow. The red one I bought at the farmers' market at the beach, and the other one I dyed while I was there, and I spun them both while there. The spirit of the style of hat is part of what I'm talking about, it's striped, but not evenly, and there are some yarn overs and the most basic of color work. I'm really very pleased. It was never in my brain to make this hat, it's part of my mindset that I should do more and think less.
