Finally! My slouch hat is finished and now just needs to be written up. Stupidly, I didn’t write everything down too clearly so it might take a while to get this one ready for testing. This isn’t the sharpest photo but you get the idea! You can see a close up pic of the pattern here from a previous post.
The yarn is Fyberspates Rural Charm, 4ply Blue Faced Leicester, Cashmere and Silk in Gold. Yum 🙂
I have decided that this will be my first leftie friendly pattern, as I feel bad for all the left-handers out there that have to read patterns backwards! I will be enlisting help from my good friend Lucy on getting everything multi-lingual so everyone can enjoy knitting it, before I start on working on my previous patterns.
On another note, here are some pretty poppies and wild flowers I spotted on my way to the post office this morning 🙂
I figure there is no point in doing a 366 project if I don’t use the photos not included for blog content! I love this last one, the flower looks super-imposed (but its not!) I’m not sure what this flower is..
And lastly, yesterday I came across these fab tutorials for creating knitting charts using Adobe Illustrator. Previously I’ve used Excel, but being a Photshop/InDesign kind of laydee, I thought it might be nice to get my head around some of the Illustrator basics. There is a lot more control to be had in how your chart looks, and you can easily create your own symbols. It’s strangely addictive too!
