Two berets


A couple of weeks ago I blogged On and on I knit, and showed L2’s beret, complete but not modelled, and a preview of L1’s beret.

Since then L2 has opened her 2nd birthday present and I received a picture message from her parents on Thursday. Apologies for the slightly grainy image, but hopefully you get the idea. I think she looks cuuuuute. And the hat doesn’t look too bad either.

As for L1’s Christmas beret, I finished the body in the week and then borrowed the brilliant  100 Flower’s to Knit and Crochet from my sister to learn how to crochet some larger flowers. I wasn’t managing to overcome the more difficult aspects of crochet and was experiencing a few problems with some of the easier crochet patterns in the book. So, I settled for 62 Irish Rose tonight after feeling inspired and raring to go after visiting the Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally today. Et voila. Here it is. Rubbish photo, but will update when L1’s modelling it, which, alas, won’t be till post-Christmas 2010.
