The knitting around here seems to be all about hats right now. I haven’t got pictures of them all yet, but I thought I’d give you a sneak peek at the second hat I made to test my Calvados Beret pattern.
I knit it up in Malabrigo Worsted yarn, and it took 65g. It is deliciously soft and looks like it fits its recipent well. I am not sure if it’s the done thing to knit a gift and then ask if you can take piccies for your blog – so here I am modelling it 🙂
Not a super slouchy beret – and before blocking it’s actually beanie shaped. Love the colour, I have more of this, so I might knit one for me yet…
And from the back…
Cute eh! I have a couple of people test knitting it right now and hope to release it soon 🙂
By the way, I took these pretty soon after I had my hair cut – what do you think? My sister commented it was getting long and I got a good 4 or so inches taken off it, plus lots of layers reinstated. And a reminder not to leave it so long between haircuts
And, did you check out that cute brooch in the first picture? It was a gift from a clever friend – I love it!
