Hand spun Angora Hat & Canning.


Angora Hat and summer canning.


This is such a busy time of year for me. I've been doing a lot of canning and baking, something I really love to do. I've always loved canning and it's second nature for me to put up preserves for the winter.

Spinning has taken a bit of a back seat to all my other activities at the moment.
 I've had some hand spun angora sitting around and decided to knit a hat. Something simple, a rolled brim and straight knitting. I used an 8mm circular knitting needle, cast on 80 stitches and it worked up quickly.
