Knit. Purl. Repeat.
That’s what I have been doing in every spare time I can find: on the drive to work in the morning, at night after dinner, on the weekends and every time I get a chance to whip out the needles. And yet I feel like my pile of WIPs is not diminishing.
But then again, I get to finish small projects like this and it makes me happy.
I finished a cardigan recently but have yet to take proper photos, and this beret is squeezed out of the final skein of the stash I used for the cardigan. It’s Crooked Paths by Melissa La Barre, my third one and I still love it.
I followed the pattern to a T this time around and just can’t help but fall in love with the finished object. It’s light despite being worsted weight. It’s got great stitch definition. It’s a good neutral, rich colour. The yarn is a dream to work with: Tosh Vintage in Composition Book Grey.
I love the perfect amount of slouch it gives. I was afraid the brim would stretch out too much when I put it over the largest pan lid I could find. But it squished right back in.
I of course had to take a photo of it on my usual model.
