Cabled hat, spun border leicester, swatching for Viking acorn cap

cabled hatFinished the organic cotton cabled hat.

 Didn’t take any decent photos of it.

Spun up the black (with brown tips) border leicester wool that I got raw off one of the other Spindlers.  Made two ply yarn.  The fleece was washed (by me) and picked through and then I spun “from a cloud”.  The washed yarn seems nice enough–but it still has VM in it.  I knit up a swatch and am felting it so I can figure out how many stitches to cast on for the acorn cap.  I am hoping to get it done before White Hart (local SCA event) so that I can enter it in the A&S competition (arts & sciences) as spinning and knitting and felting.
