Hybrid Scrap Hat

No, it's not powered by windmills or solar panels, and it's not in the least "green"- "hybrid" as in a combo of millspun and my handspun; "scrap" in that I knit it with my small balls...maybe I should rephrase that.

I really like the clever use of the red to tie the whole hat together. Very nice, Albert.

Very nice, Albert. And I took the usage of "balls" in the generally accepted knitting manner. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Ooh, a nice way to start the weekend, a new hat a la Albert!
Great colors, and nice use of the "scraps", looks pretty ballsy to me:)

Albert - I know they were scraps BUT you have a color sense that is always right on! Great looking hat.

Love it Albert! I'm digging the color combination! (at least you stated your recall in a very timely manner)

Albert, I can never say enough about your hats... they're always beautiful and intriguing... I've taken entire courses on color theory and I still can't get random bits of yarn to work together...
