Otherwise known as Project You Didn't Even Know I Was Working On:
You like how I tried to copy Ysolda's pose in her pattern photo? We do have slightly different looks though, don't we . . .
I really like how this beret came out, and it was fun to knit. And quick, too! 2 days of knitting was plenty to get it done. I kind of screwed up the beginning rib and it was too loose when I tried it on, so I cut the ribbing off the bottom and knit a new rib down on a smaller needle. Now it's a little too tight but I figure it'll loosen up.
I found the pattern very clear and easy, except I would have preferred the rounds to be numbered so I could more easily find my place (they all say "next round" instead of "round 1" or whatever). I also didn't do the tubular cast on she calls for, more out of laziness than anything else.
I'm already debating making another one in black . . . have I mentioned I've never worn a beret in my life? ;o)
