From Handspun to Finished Product

Here is the project made from my first handspun. As the yarn was very bulky, there wasn't enough yardage to work with. However, with the use of size eleven needles, I was able to create a simple hat. It was originally to be a gaitor, but as I progressed, I tried it on and saw that I could continue on. I didn't follow any particular pattern and "winged it" on the decrease and bind off. I just wish I hadn't waited so long to ply and knit this up considering that winter is almost over.
