La Parisenne Beret



I made this one for Mum for her birthday a couple of months ago but forgot to post it!

The pattern is La Parisenne Beret, which I found on Ravelry

And on that topic – come visit me at Ravelry! Any designs I make up will end up there as well as here on my blog.



It has begun…

I’ve started making Christmas presents… Here’s the progress so far:



I didn’t use a pattern for this one, seeing as I was just making a pretty simple beanie – Just knitted until it looked about the right size, then decreased it down to the end.



For my Nan (matches a pair of fingerless gloves I made her earlier in the year)

Pattern is this, it’s supposed to be a beret but it didn’t really turn out like that – so I figured a beanie would work too. It was probably because I used needles about 2 sizes smaller than the pattern specifies, because I’ve only got 2 sizes of double points (2.25mm & 3.25mm). I will be rectifying this problem once I have some spare spending money.
