Caps as Gifts

Excuse Charlie - almost all my hats I've knit from hand-
dyed, hand spun yarns. That seems to be what sells. On occasion, I've made hats from natural colored wools, but they haven't exactly jumped into shopping bags. But now I have a Christmas commission and it's for natural colored yarns.

These are the two that I have completed so far. I am pleased, because the patterns that I have worked on in the variegated colored yarns have been completely unsuccessful on the natural colored yarns. In fact, viewing a WIP last month, Amy quipped that sometimes the best solution is to rip out and start over. The hat that judicious comment was directed to is on the left. I love the hat and am glad I listened to her.

Gosh - I'll have to work on my tactfulness. The results are beautiful, though!

So nice and unique. I do like all your hats. Natural colors from shetland wool can't be beat.

Wow, the natural wools with your creative patterns are the ones I am most attracted to! I love color but actually tend to wear a lot of neutrals. Your hats are fantastic.
