Two-Day Beret

Yes, it really only took two days. Although I knit a lot during those two days. Heh.

Moss stitch beret
Pattern: Moss Stitch Beret by Kent Turman
Yarn: 100Purewool 3-ply in Azul Profundo
Needle: 3US

I'm truthfully not sure why Kent has one cast on provisionally on dpns. It takes a special kind of talent to cast on 90 stitches in the round provisionally on dpns. Quickly, but not quickly enough, I realized this would be an easier task on a small circular needle. Otherwise, I knit the hat a little taller than called for because I knew I wanted to pull it down over my ears. It was snowing here just yesterday. Yeah, this hat has to be functional and cute. But really, when you are staring down another "numbing" winter, cute really takes a back seat to functional.

While the little one and I were sick, we ended up getting a new camera. Hooray for entering the land of DSLR. Hooray for pick-me-up purchases whilst ill.

Yay for a new camera!

I wish I could pull off a beret. I SO want to knit one, but I'm absolutely sure I would never wear it. You, on the other hand, look adorable in a beret. I'm not envious one bit.
