>another finished object [ which needs a name ]

>Nadie wanted a slouchy hat
I felt like playing with a particular lace
This was the result
and I like it so much I’m about to cast on one for myself in blue

pattern – improvised
needles – 3.75mm & 4.5mm KP Harmony
yarn – Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 8ply in Ruby

This isn’t by any means the first time I’ve used Luxury, which is a nice, soft, machine washable little workhorse of a yarn with only one drawback. It grows like nobody’s business the first time it hits water. Now if one happens to know that, one can [to a certain extent ] allow for it, but it does still make ‘improvising’ in this yarn a bit of a gamble size wise. This time, with the help of some swatching and some maths, I pretty much got the desired result … even if The Girl does still think it’s a little loose.

anyone want the pattern ?
