I decided yesterday that I was going to knit for myself, I've been wanting to make a red beret. However, my hat skills are wonky I usually come up with a hat that will not fit who it is suppose to (and one is so large it fits no one).
The red beret isSpring Beret
It's a ravelry free download
Yarn: KP's Andean Silk in Holly berry, first time using this yarn and it was really nice and soft.
YAY it fits me too although my little girl is showing it off and giving the peace sign. Very fast knit too
The other beret is the Purl Beret
I made this last year but forgot about it till I finished up yesterday's...anyways it fits my 5yr old but she is happy so that is all that counts. I don't remember the yarn only that it was a sock yarn.
Lastly, a pair of tropical punch slipper socksfor Martha...she asks for a pair every Christmas as she wears her others till they are wore out. I gave her a pair early this fall when she found out she had to go through Chemo...but decided to make her another pair this weekend for Christmas.
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft in 2 colors held together this way she can just throw them in the wash.
