Voila! Le' Slouch!

Thanks to Wendy at Knit and Tonic, I have finally knit up a cute little cap I can wear... in public. I've tried crocheting one (see below for pathetic excuse for a hat). I've tried a different beret pattern which turned out much too small so it looked like a brain-sucking mollusk, and another felting disaster that came out looking like a plain old mistake. Since I usually wear my unruly hair up, I'm happy the cap can cover my haphazard bun-knots.

And after many attempts of trying to photograph it on my own head, then my dog's head, I decided to let my dress form model it. Much to my chagrin she does a better job than me.

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in Aslan. Less than one skein used.

I've also made some progress on my Phildar Swing Jacket. Just about done with that front left side. I'll be moving to the sleeves next. Hopefully I'll have something picture worthy soon!

I've also made le slouch (but think I'll probably make it again in a more "wearable" colour...) and I've officially joined the phildar kal as well -woo hoo! I look forward to seeing the progress on your jacket :)
