The first thing out of his mouth when I popped my completed Le Slouch onto his head and took a snap.

Pattern:Le Slouch from Knit and Tonic

Materials: 5mm 16″ Circs and 6mm Knit Picks Options

Materials: 2.5 balls of Mirasol Sulka in Shade 203

This yarn is utterly gorgeous, but shed tremendously before washing, and was really loosely plied. It’s knit at  slightly tighter gauge than the yarn recommends, but this made the fabric firm enough for the pattern, and minimises continuing shedding. Plus, the silk content makes the hat shimmer in the rare Midlands sunshine.

The pattern was well written, easy to follow and so so quick: I finished this on a slow Sunday, but it still wasn’t dry when I came back from a conference on Thursday. Best not drop this in any puddles, then.

Just in time for warmer weather, I’m knitting a wool jumper.

Soon, amorphous blob of wool, you shall be finished and slung into the wardrobe until the weather gets a bit more British.
