Sheep to Sweater Sunday n° 21 " Another Hat "

De la Toison au Tricot n° 21 " Un autre bonnet ! "

I just had to knit another one!
This time all in natural ouessant colors!

Il m’en fallait faire un autre!
Cette fois-ci uniquement avec de la laine ouessant de couleurs naturelles.

Merveille, Elaphe, Ponette, & Sonaille (Lutins du Montana) and Margot, Praline & Rhum Raisin from my flock contributed to this hat.

Pour ce bonnet j’ai utilisé la laine de Merveille, Elaphe, Ponette & Sonaille des Lutins du Montana auxquelles j’ai ajouté de la laine de Margot, Praline et Rhum Raisin de mon troupeau.

This is really a stunning hat! (If I must say so myself!)
The colors are so rich and beautiful.
The photo really doesn’t show how beautiful it is!

C’est vraiment un bonnet bien réussi! (Même si c’est moi qui le dit!)
Les couleurs sont si somptueuses et chaudes.
Malheureusement la photo ne rend pas bien à quel point il est superbe!

These hats are absolutely gorgeous! I usually lurk on your blog, but have thoroughly enjoyed this series on prepping and spinning your sheep's wool. It's been a marvelous journey, reading about it. Thank you for sharing!

Why thank you so much!
I have to admit that I was surprised at how nicely these little hats turned out. I think that the "stained glass" pattern by green mountain spinnery really shows off the yarn. My husband has already "ordered" a whole sweater using the color patterns and yarns of the "all natural" hat. Looks like I'll have my work cut out for me next year! But have to admit that it would make into a lovely sweater.

Thank you for visiting the Spinning Shepherd!
