These are two of the hats I made when I was taking my Ontario Handspinners Certificate.  The one on the left was made with practice yarn for the ‘Snarl Yarn’ in the novelty yarn unit.  The other hat is made with a 4-ply from the fictitious line of yarns I made for my final project.  The plain pink yarn in this case was my then favourite yarn, King Cole antitickle DK.  My concept was to use a commercial yarn to showcase the handspun.  This serves a second purpose of stretching the handspun, which is, of course, pretty labour intensive.
