Hand spun wool beanie

I am still learning how to spin but each week I am getting better. This wool I made form alpaca fleece, alpaca fluff, merino wool roves and some light and dark ram's wool fleece. it represents quite an achievement for me. I found the alpaca fleece quite hard to spin so it was a matter of patience and care.I actually used the pattern for the baby beanie . I cast on 66 stitches and used 7mm needles. It knitted up very quickly and used about 200g of my home spun wool - 150 of the alpaca mix and 50 g of the ramswool . I am really pleased with it. It is soft and cosy!
