for my mama

Just a quick little Christmas beret for my mother.  It was actually one of the kids who suggested that Me-Mom would look really good in a beret and perhaps I should make her one.  Everyone else quickly chimed in in agreement and so it was decided.  The yarn is Cascade Eco+ in Lake Chelan Heather, same as the stripes on Alex’s gnome hat.  I forgot to take pictures of her during Christmas and actually snapped this one as she was literally walking out the door.

Luckily I have some more detailed photos from earlier in December when I was gathering pictures together for the pattern.

The pattern has instructions for two versions one that’s less slouchy and one with a bit more slouch.  This is the slouchier version.  My green one, as seen below is of the less slouchy verity.

While we’re on the subject of knitting, I recently created a facebook page for my designs.  I’m really just in the beginning stages of setting it up, but in the future I’m imagining sneak peeks at new patterns, special offers, possibly some exclusive free patterns…so go on over and check it out.  Feel free to “like” the page so that you get updates on all the good stuff as it gets added.

I’m so happy to be back to knitting these days, working on a very, very simple sweater for Galen’s birthday.  I’m using Wool of the Andes in ‘Honey’ for my yellow loving boy.  It makes me think of Rumpelstiltskin spinning gold.
