My Winter Beret Finished

I thought I was making good progress on my lush and lacy cardigan. I'm having trouble with the decreases on the sleeves. I can't get the right stitch count. Anyways, I realized that I don't have enough yarn to finish it! So close! I just need to get over the the LYS to get that one more skein. Hopefully, they'll have the color in stock. In the meantime, I thought I start on a simple beret. This beret is from called spring beret. I used a worsted yarn from my stash with a size 8 needle for the ribbing then changed to 9 for the lace part. Overall, a very easy project. I didn't have to use DPNs or cable needle. It took me about 3 days to do. My daughter decided she wanted to try it on. She's so adorable! Okay, I'm a bit bias I know!

And me with my beret....I think she looks much cuter! :-)

Your beret is beautiful, and it looks cute on both you and your daughter. :-) I finished another Gretel recently, and I think I will try the Koolhaas Hat for a friend's Christmas present. You should totally try Gretel! It's only until the end that you need to go down to DPNs too.
