Renee's Alpaca Hat

This is the handsome, light fawn Beau who used to stay with my dear, dear friend Marianne who lives down in Nashville, MI. He is now cheerfully being a herd sire, studly guy that he is.... I used his fiber to make the yarn for this hat.

Renee from Madison, Wisconsin knitted this dear little hat this month. Actually I could use it this morning. The wind is just a howling out there and our thermometer reads 32 degrees. Oh, woe is me - the barn critters need their breakfast and poop needs to be moved.

SPRING is coming, Spring IS coming....

Renee bought the 122 yard skein of yarn that I hand dyed in roving form and then spun up. She used US size 8 needles to knit her hat. More of her work can be seen on Ravelry.
I enjoy so much seeing my yarn make the complete circle from the fiber of my alpaca friends to a usable finished product of my fiber friends.

I have gotten SO many compliments on my hat. It is all because of the beautiful yarn that you and Beau created :-D
