Knitting with Handspun

This weekend, I took advantage of the cool weather and empty schedule.  I sat down in front of the computer (streaming Netflix is our T.V.) and made use of my small hand spun skeins. 

First, I worked up a headband.  It was 3 repeats of Diamond Medallion Panel lace pattern from this book.  Then 10 rows of 2x1 rib, then 1x1 rib.  It used all but a few yards of the yarn and I am thrilled.  I think of it as my Gypsy headband.
Then, still being fueled by instant gratification, I worked up this little hat. 

That is 80 yards of whimsical pointy hat cuteness.  I can't wait to see it on a small head!  In the mean time, The butternut squash in the kitchen makes a great model!!
