An FO comes out of hiding.

Y'all aren't going to believe this, but I finished this beret almost 3 weeks ago. When I first finished it I wasn't sure how I liked it and it got set aside. The other day when it got really cold and icy/rainy here I pulled it out and put it on and whatdya know!, I liked it. I think it's pretty cute as long as I look in a mirror to "arrange" it the right way (I have no idea how to wear a beret!!). So here it is. I think I'll be wearing it on our outing to Ikea this weekend.

Pattern: Last Minute "Purled" Beret by Knit and Tonic Wendy
Yarn: Lamb's Pride worsted, maybe half a skein in some charcoal color
Needles: #9 dpns
Notes: I haven't blocked it yet so it doesn't really look like Wendy's. I think I'll wet block it at some point but only to even out the stitches because honestly, I like the "slouchy" look of it. In fact, I went back and forth with whether I should knit Le Slouch or the Purled Beret but in the end I was afraid the Le Slouch would be too slouchy. What a fun little project!

That's adorable!

It seems like you've had more winter weather in Texas than we've had in New England.

It's adorable, and I'm sure the color will be nice and versatile. What a cute small project! I might have to do one.
