Norwegian Star Cap

I have been in a hat-knitting mood lately, and this was the first one.  The yarn is handspun from a colorful batt which has been in my stash for a while.  I didn't like the colors as they seemed somewhat disconnected and didn't flow well, so I spun the black/taupe and then spun the lavender to brilliant blue.  I had in mind some sort of stranded hat.  I am so pleased at the outcome.  I used a pattern from "Hats On" by Charlene Schurch, and I want to make a lot more from that book.

That is a wonderful patttern/yarn choice. I always wonder what to do with handspun and love to see ideas like this!

This is a great combination of colors. Love the result.
