A lovely beret


Here is a beret made of acrylic and in the fan and feather pattern. It’s slouchy and fun to wear.




Red Sails


Several weeks ago I finally delivered the sweater to my cousin, tied in a beautiful organza like blue ribbon and placed in a wonderful white box that would hold a big bowl. The box was tied in the same ribbon the sweater was tied in. It was beautiful.

Red Sails, a sock, and a beret

The Kaffe Fassett design, Red Sails, sweater is coming to completion. It fits the person I am making it for. I have put in the V-neckline and I am now weaving in all the ends. I have mixed feelings about it completion.  I had been several long years since I first started working on it. Soon, a major project will be off the needles.  I am looking forward to the end date.  I do not want to make another Red Sails sweater. I hope the intended wearer enjoys wearing it.

I am working on a very simple sock with self striping yarn.  The yarn in in the purple-deep blue range.  At first I wanted to make lace, but I feared the colors would be too dark to show off the lace. I have made almost 75% of the first sock.

A beret is in the works. It is a Christmas/birthday gift for a friend of mine. I have 5 inches to go.
