Thought you folks might enjoy seeing an upcoming hat "in utero". I'm blending wool and silk on my hand cards- heavy on the silk. The wheel is a Majacraft Green Suzie, which I love. Someday I'd like to try a double drive type wheel. As to the hat, I have no idea yet what it will be as I usually just compose on the needles.

p.s. Can anyone tell me how to include a pic in my post without adding it as a file attachment? Makes me feel numb as a hake.

Adding them as file attachments way and works the best.

Wow. silk top photographs funny. It looks so shiny I almost thought it was some synthetic. I can't wait to see the finished yarn and hat. The colours are lovely.

I, too, like the colours and the cat. How many do you have (cats)?

Three, Ron- two old codgers like myself, and one youngster for spice.

Oooo, Albert I would call the color "Summer Storm". That's the color the sky turns here in the Midwest when tornados are lurking about. I've always thought it was beautiful and dramatic color. When I saw it on my screen it immediatily evoked the smell and taste of hot summer storm.

As for post picts, Mario is right the easiest way is the way you've been doing it. However, Darrel posted this a while back.

However, in order to use the HTML tag method you have to have your pictures posted somewhere on the web already such as Ravelry or Facebook.

I guess I'll continue going the easy route!

Easy is good.

Love the cat and the yarn. I've only spun silk in very limited amounts. I really like the way it blends onto the wool, though. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
