Striped!

 I had a little ball of hand spun yarn in gray
 and another little one of charcoal color 
so I decided to put them to work together!
 I wanted to try the 'no jog color striping' method.
It takes a bit of forethought to get the tension even
but it worked!
 The thing is that is moves the first stitch of the row over every time so it is not a good technique for colorwork chart knitting obviously
but for hats it worked great!
If you look closely, you can see a diagonal line of stitches.
This is what I mean when I said you need to work at keeping the tension even.
After blocking, the stitches were invisible and the hat, in superwash hand spun,
 is ready for the donation pile!
