I already told you I loved it. Well, now it’s done. Sweet heysoos, I luz it.
It finished great (aside from my double pointed needles having a mind of their own and constantly slipping out) and then I blocked it. To keep it’s beret shape, my pal Martha suggested using a dinner plate – I opted for a salad plate and it worked beautifully. I love wearing it out and really can’t wait until it warms up because it’s the perfect hat for cool days (not so much cold days but guess who doesn’t care).
My only beef is that after I washed and blocked my hat, the brim seemed to stretch. Not a big deal as it is a slouchy beret, but I wish it were a tad bit tighter around edge. However, it doesn’t keep me from wearing it. Because I luz it.
I feel like my knitting comprehension has expanded in the last few weeks and I’ve been churning out projects. Well-made projects. Props go out the ladies in my knitting circle and PodMate – you’re fabulous. I heart you. And my hat.
