Wintery Hat

Remember the first real yarn I made and plied on my wheel? Yes, the gray over kinked stuff. Well I wasn't going to use it as is, so I cable-plied it, making it a 9ply yarn, this ended up a nice worsted weight. I took my leftover alpaca from my sisters Christmas hat a couple years ago and knit a nice winter warm hat. . . .
