The Love/Hate object of my affection

I have a Love/Hate affair with Lette Lopi Yarn.

I love that it is wool. I love that it is water repellant, that it is warm. That it has a spectacular bloom, when soaked and washed. I love the range of colours and I love the price and that it is available in Canada.

What’s to hate? The biasing, when knit circular in stockinette. Of course, there are other stitches. Therein, lies the challenge.

Here is one solution. Washing machine felted hat.

I am pleased with the result. So much so, that I have cast-on for another shape in the white yarn. I found using a 7mm knitting needle seemed to produce a nice felt.
