Yes, it is not really a beret, but do you think I could stop humming Prince’s song while I knitted it?
Diana sent me a gorgeous ball of cashmere-blend yarn. It was so very lovely and soft that I am sad to hear that it is a discontinued range. I recently rediscovered the yarn in my knitting basket and immediately went on the hunt for patterns to use it up.
I love, love, LOVE the search feature on Ravelry that allows you to search specifically for patterns that use X metres of yarn in X ply. The pattern I chose is called Archetipo and is a Ravelry download. The details are on my Ravelry page.
The hat was a very easy knit. I started it one evening and finished it the next day on a flight to Melbourne. I do not think I have ever before finished a knitted project within 24 hours.
I hope baby Persephone likes it. (Cool name, right?) She gave it a good suck of approval when I gave it to her, so I am taking that as a positive sign.
