One Day Beret



I knit this little beret intended for myself using Yarn Pirate's handspun. It's so soft and warm and I absolutely love the colors. I had to unravel the ribbing and decreases several times to get the right fit, and it's still too big on my head. I had my mom try it on, and Voila! C'est magnifique! I feel good about it going to her because she appreciates every step of the process it took to make it: from the pattern being created, to the sheep providing the wool, to Georgia dying and spinning the fibers, and finally me knitting it all together. This lovely beret was meant to be worn on her sweet head.
