I must confess, I’m one of the worlds worst procrastinators! If there is work to do then you can bet that I will leave it to the last minutes and find a hundred other things to do first. This is demonstrated in the above project, my ‘work aviodance beret’! I got the yarn just the other day in my Christmas swap parcel…. and I had to knit it up right away! I’m on a bit of a mission with berets at the moment after I tried on about thirty in the shops last week and couldn’t find one to suit me. I again used the superb beret pattern in the Twilleys Freedom Spirit 455 book; this seems to be the perfect hat pattern for me. It knitted up very quickly again and I think the lovely yarn works well with the pattern. I went up a needle size to give the beret a bit of a slouchy feel. I’m going to add sequins to this when I can find them in my sewing box, it only used about 60g of wool so I have enough left over for a nice corsage of something.
Today though, I really do have to get on with some work as its the last day of half term and we are back to school tomorrow. Its been great to have a much needed week off and finally get some knitting done again. I have cast on for another baby hat for another baby due soon….. I must resist!
This beret is soooooo soft!
