Once more, with feeling :: Handspun Norie Hat

I made my mother-in-law a handspun hat for Christmas, at her request. It turned out great, except for the sad fact that it was way too big.┬áSo Christmas night, I frogged it and started over. I didn’t really mind knitting this thing twice, because handspun is just too much of a pleasure to begrudge any extra knitting. Next thing I knew, I was done (again).

I’m very pleased with how it turned out, and I especially love how the color transitions match up with the garter ridges so well.

My mother-in-law is very pleased with the hat. I haven’t yet gotten a picture of her wearing it, but it looks a little like the first version did:
