My hat

The pattern is called Selbu Modern. Using Mini Mochi and Baby Ull. So far, so good.
Have plans to make 2 more of these. One in Rose and white and one in the last of the Mini mochi and Navy Baby Ull.

Spinning experiment

Well all the pictures I took look a little fuzzy but this,my dears, is Samoyed dog hair. My friend Jeanne brought me a large plastic bag full of the brightest white, softest, really lovely stuff to spin up for her. I wondered how it would do uncarded. Its really easy to soft. I don't have any cards anyway but I could have improvised something. I considered mixing it with wool. I don't think I need to. Any of you ever spin dog fur?
