Thursday, January 7


Brrrrr!! Like most of the country, we are in a deep freeze. Cold, cold, cold and windy!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's Day...we certainly did.

Here's my first finish for 2010...and none too soon with these single digit temperatures!
This is my Meret, and I love it. This was probably one of the most fun things I've ever knit. I couldn't wait to work on it, and then woosh it was done. This is my first beret type of hat, and I think I've finally found a hat type that doesn't make me look like a complete dork. Yah for berets!

Hopefully I'll get some modelled shots this weekend, cause I'm definitely going to need a hat!


Pattern: Meret by Woolly Wormhead
Yarn: Cascade 220, Colorway 9401
Needles: US7 Knit Picks Options 20" circs
Mods: I did 3 repeats of the lace pattern for a moderately slouchy effect

I've got Selbu Modern in my sights now.

Great beret! Love the stitch design. On someone's blog, she said that she blocks her berets on plates! I never thought of that!
