Spun Yarn

I finally have my own spinning wheel, and I love it!! I entered some yarn in the county fair and got a blue ribbon, but I have a better picture of the yarn that I spun up to make another Monmouth Cap. I love handspun. What can I say more?

Pirate Hats!

No, not that kind of pirate hat.

I've been knitting for re-enactors. Here is "Mad Pete" in a monmouth cap I knit:

Here is "Cross" in a thrummed cap I madly finished for him. Mine's the one on the right.

I'm loving making these hats as authentically as possible in wool, color, and construction. What fun!
