The Blue Beret

I’m working on another Periwinkle Beret. I’m using Lorna’s Laces Sport, the yarn designated for the pattern. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I love the subtle variations of blue in the yarn.


I’m half way through the decreases. I know I keep saying this, but I throughly enjoy knitting this pattern.

I recently had the desire to knit myself some socks. But I don’t have yarn I want to use. Now … if you know my penchant for Cabin Cove handpainted yarn, you’ll know that I have some perfectly good yarn to use. But I love that yarn so much, I’m hard pressed to use it for socks that are going to wear out. Besides, two skeins are ear marked for the Chevron scarf and another is on hold for the Lettuce Leaf Scarf. And I’ve discovered as much as I like variegated yarns, I don’t enjoy them as socks … at least not with US size 3 needles and it’s going to be a while before I go back to US size 2 needles. So … I’m in search of yarn for my next pair of socks. I’d love to try Vesper Sock Yarn, but it’s currently out of stock. I’ll keep searching and I’ll let you know what I find.

Today was a nice sunny day so I took advantage of it and took a bunch of photos for upcoming posts so I just need to type them up.

And to all the people who have commented on my last few posts, Thank YOU! I am very appreciative of you taking the time to comment!

Happy knitting and thanks for stopping by!
