Homespun Hat

This is the first project I ever knitted with my homespun yarn. I was still taking lessons when these singles were ready to ply. I decided to try Navajo plying...basically turning a single thread into 3 ply by doing chained loops. I ruined half the singles because I began plying on my wheel in the same direction that the singles were spun. I wish I had a picture to show you. I will NEVER do that again. As a result, I only had a small amount of yarn left. I decided to make a hat. I will never be able to give it away because it was the "First".
