This project was one that I completed as part of a swap. Mel had some lovely dark brown hand spun which she wanted knit up into a scarf with a hood in the middle. It turned out really nicely :-)
Pattern: Peaks Island Hood by Ysolda Teague
Yarn: Mel's hand spun in a chocolate brown colour way.
Needles: 6 mm Knit Pro interchangeables with Nickel tips.
Started: February 12, 2011
Finished: March 22, 2011
Comments: It was a bit challenging when I started knitting it because there was a bit of lanolin on the wool still, but every time I knit it my hands got lovely and soft :-)
