I designed the hat above in order to knit something with the elastic thread that I spun up. It made a perfect band for my hat and I have spun more up to play with. The single that I knit the top portion of the hat with is not a total match, so the hat might end up in the dye pot. It fits my head.
This is what the skein below looked like on the swift. You could not see the elastic and it looked like a normal skein of yarn. It was cool to see it kink up. The kid mohair softened up amazingly.
I have the shop half packed for TohonoChul. Marc just got home from the east coast, so he will be able to help me load on this end. The Holiday nights is from 5:30-8:30 tonight and tomorrow night - hope to see a few of you there.
