CO Monday: a green hat and a blue-grey shacowl

Time to use some handspun! I had an underplied bright green skein of handspun yarn from quite some time ago.  I decided to run it through the wheel to ply it properly, and then took it up to Kate’s for a bath in some black dye.  It’s not superwash, so the black dye just toned down the Oscar the Grouch green a smidge.  Good enough for me!  I’m making a lacy cap out of it:

I bought some local-spun (is that a thing?) from Long Island Livestock at Stitches East — a gorgeous blue/grey alpaca blend.  I’m making a Starshower with it — this item starts out like a semi-circle top-down shawl, but joins into a cowl at some point. Interesting!
