My good friend Mr P once gave me a mixed CD, called ‘Mr P’s mellow glide’. The songs were a little bit cheesy, but so very Mr P. It makes me smile every time I listen to it, and I still do, six years later (six years! how did that happen?) One of the songs was Suzanne Vega’s Luka.
Today he texted me with the news of his first child, a boy, called Luca. I texted back, ‘like the song?’, and Mr P said yes, indeed, just like the song. I assume the next one is going to be called Mickey to keep the ’80s theme going.
The hat is part of a package of things for Luca. I added some stripes and a pointy top to this basic hat pattern. It’s a very quick and easy knit. The wool is Filatura de Crosa Zara.
