Greek Key Cap - Stranding Project

Well, it's finished. I got some suggestions on how to finish it off with the flat top. Basically divided it into 10 sections of 9 needles each and decreased each section every other row.

I subscribe to Interveave 'Knits' magazine and the latest issue continues a trend found in most knitting magazines of including little or nothing for men in the way of sweaters patterns, designs etc.

First Stranding Project - Progress

So after a bit of practice with stranding, I cast on yarn for a hat and went at it.

Spinning the yarn

Here is the orchid yarn starting to fill up the spool. I'm waiting for delivery of some Cheviot fleece from Pennsylvania so that I can spin the white yarn. I've already spun up some of the black.
