Here’s my slouchy beret, all finished and blocked and ready to wear!
This pattern (available on Ravelry for free!) knitted up really quickly and I have to admit that I am in love with this deep teal colour (most accurately displayed in the picture above). Below is a close up of the cabling and the centre swirl is created by the decreases. I always forget (as a somewhat sporadic knitter) how much difference blocking makes!
Next up on my autumn knitting plan is a pair of these Evangeline fingerless gloves in the same wool. The pattern is available on Ravelry for $3 CAD about £1.96 at todays date. Reading the notes it’s apparent that a thumb gusset is needed, so I’ve already re-written the pattern to include this. If you read the information on Ravelry, everything you need is there to enable you to do the same.
Oh, and go and see this refashion done by Zoe for Miss P’s Refashioners series. Grandma kilt to sexy pencil skirt complete with fish tail. Makes me want to find a grandma kilt…
