2012 FO: Handspun Cabled Headband

Project: Aeline's Wreath by Leigh McDonna
Yarn: Handspun single ply Merino/Cashmere/Silk Blend
Needles: US7

This is my first project out of my handspun. It's a small one, but so soft and squishy (I have a feeling I'm going to be using those adjectives a lot). 

I love the colors in this yarn, the contrast of the teals and pinks...

And it's thick enough to wear over my ears. 

You know the merino, cashmere and silk is sooo soft against the skin.

Hand Dyed 60% Merino Wool, 20% Cashmere, 20% Silk from Creatively Dyed in the Bangles colorway purchased at Vogue Knitting Live 2012.
I'm going to have to make something else that goes next to the skin with the remainder of the yarn.
