Hand Spun Hat from Start to Finish.
Three bobbins were filled with laceweight singles, ever so slightly over twisted for durability. The Elizabeth 30 was used in the spinning and I can't say enough about Ashford's competition lazy kate for putting together this 3ply yarn. It holds tension just beautifully so that tangled hold-ups are a thing of the past. I doubled this yarn for a dense, warm knit using a modified version of the Arcadia Hat by Mimi Hill. Not that I didn't love the original but I had a request for an added brim which bumped up the charted pattern and required a new decrease sequence. And with no time to spare; a wind breaking hat for January.
