"Just be who you are, calm and clear and bright." - Richard Bach, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah

I finished this beret at the end of August, but since it was my mother’s birthday gift I had to hold off blogging it. This is one of the most popular hat patterns on Ravelry, and you can see why–it’s so lovely! (I will confess, though, that I still haven’t learned to knit two-handed. I make an attempt, it’s inevitably awkward, and I get impatient and keep going with my incredibly inefficient one-handed method. I’m afraid that’s why the colorwork isn’t quite as crisp as it could be. Oh well, next time…)

Pattern: Selbu Modern by Kate Gagnon Osborn
Yarn: Rowan Scottish Tweed 4-ply, thistle (1.2 balls or thereabouts), and Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, hyacinth (less than 1 ball). I had a ball and a half of the Scottish Tweed left over from the dotty tweed pullover I made last year, so that worked out perfectly.
Needles: #1.5s for the ribbing and #3s for the rest.
Raveled here.

Just look at how cute she is!!!!!

Happy (week after your) Birthday, Mamacita!

    It looks great on her and definitely not something that she has already!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
