Ivan Hat

I mentioned a while back that our fiber mill had finally sent us the spun yarn from Ivan’s first shearing (well, aside from my awful attempt). A couple months ago I used some of it to knit hubby a cabled hat:

The pattern is Knotty but Nice, which hubby chose himself. I used 2 strands of the (sport-ish weight) yarn held together and went up 2 needle sizes for the cable portion to avoid the tightness others had mentioned. The project is Raveled here. It fits pretty well, although I think I might go up 3 needle sizes for the cable section if I knit this again.

In other news, we very recently got back our spun yarn from BOTH Ivan and Hamlet’s Fall 2010 fleeces from the wonderful folks at Central Virginia Fiber Mill. Both turned out very well – I’ll post photos soon!
