[knitting] Handspun Warlock

I made a 3rd Wilted Warlock and I think I'm all Warlocked out.

Wilted Warlock Hat

I'm keeping this one because it's knit with my own handspun. The original fiber:

Creatively Dyed Yarn

Purchased, I believe, at the 2010 NY Sheep and Wool Festival (my first and only Rhinebeck). The fiber content is 70% wool and 30% seacell, so the finished yarn has a nice sheen:

Creatively Dyed Yarn Fiber Spun

It's a pretty dense bulky-weight yarn. Should keep me nice and warm but the finished hat doesn't have the drape that I desire (and seemingly hardly every achieve).  

I'm going back to knitting socks...
