We’re back to regular life here at Chez Rambling Roses with it being the first day of school today 🙂 I’ve been craving for some instant gratification knitting lately and so I decided to cast of for this hat a couple nights ago. Instant gratification achieved since I finished it this morning.
Right now, it is just a blob and I’m hoping that blocking will work its usual magic so that I’ll have a nice little beret in a few days. It will be a while until I use it with the amazing weather we’re still having. For this beret, I used heathered Berroco Ultra Alpaca. The alpaca adds a lovely halo and is so soft to the touch.
It is the same pattern as this hat for which I used Sweet Georgia Worsted. The different yarns produce finished objects that are quite different from each other.
Once de blob is blocked, I’m sure it will take on a whole new look. I hope that the alpaca halo remains though because I quite like it.
