Handspun, Handknit Silk Hat


I’ve been trolling through the far reaches of my stash and gathering inspiration. This handspun 2-ply silk is from my earliest spinning days and has been sitting in my stash for years now.  I dusted it off (really, I had to dust it a little), and decided that the best thing I could do with it would be to make a lovely silk hat.  Silk is warm, and the orange is bright and cheerful.  The recipient was appreciative if a little surprised at the color.  I told her that this hat is her “Going Out” hat.  It’s for those times when you need a little nicer hat to keep warm because you are going out for dinner or to a movie with friends. 🙂
