Remember that annoying pattern idea that jumped into my head a little while ago. The one that bullied all the other ideas out until I agreed to knit it up? Well I did, and then a wonderful group of people test knit it for me and now it’s finally up on Ravelry.

There was quite a debate about if it should be a free or paid for pattern but in the end I decided to put it up for free. It also changed name, eventually becoming the Alchemilla Slouchy Hat.
You can find it here on Ravelry and I’m looking at putting it up on the Fantasia Yarns Website as well. Unfortunately (or should that be fortunately, I’m not sure) it seems to have invited some friend in to settle in my mind. So I now have another two designs. One (The Pebbles Walking Hat) is typed up and ready for test knitting, the other (Daisy May) is in the process of being written up.
What I really need now is for the weather to play ball so I can get out and take some photos. It just doesn’t seem right to ask people to test knit something without some decent shots to show them what they’re letting themselves in for……
