My New Hat



I don't know if I have mentioned how much I love Alpaca fiber but I do.
I misplaced my favorite winter hat last week and decided that I would use some of the lovely Alpaca yarn I have been hoarding to whip up a new beanie. The first attempt yielded a hat that is ginormous on me but my hubby loved it and and he does look awfully cute and cozy in it. So I drastically downsized my pattern and gave it another try: My head is cold after all! I bought this yarn straight from Phantom Canyon Alpacas in Florence, CO. Is there anything more exciting then knowing the who and where of your fiber? Thank you Honey for your wonderfully soft fiber. I may never take this hat off!
