I loved making this Beanie. it is pure wool and the three sorts of wool I used were lovely to work with. The handspun wool still had the lanolin in it and so was very soft to work with. I had found the wool in my stash and because there wasn't much of it I thought beanies were the way to go. Isobel Corbally is one of Adelaide's water colour artists. We actually have quite a few good hand spinners in Adelaide and we need to hear more about them. After all Australia is famous for its wool. This beanie is soft but it's warm and the wool would give some waterproofing protection in damp weather. This knitted up quite quickly because it was thick, textured wool on number 7 needles.
