FO Friday – Handspun Tully

IMG_1018 IMG_1028I’ve been working  away on a couple of custom dye/spin/knit projects and I finally have a finished object that I get to share.

As some of you may remember, I made an extra special shawl a while back from a blend of Tully (dog) fur and merino and I had quite a lot of fiber leftover so D asked me to make a couple of dog inspired colorwork hats.   For this hat in particular, I decided use the fiber in its natural creamy color as the contrast color, and for the main color, I dyed it using a low-water immersion technique for a lovely semi-solid color.  For the actual construction of the hat, I picked earflaps with intarsia snowflakes, a dog motif and speckled crown, and a nice i-cord trim because I just love how it makes a nice finished edge.   I started the knitting last night and just couldn’t put it down. I do love a good binge knit!  He he he

The next  dye/spin/knit project is also a dog themed hat but will be a bit different. But that is a post for another day.

Happy Friday all!
