I love berets

I think you could guess by now. I love berets. That is one of the few types of hats I think suit me.
Add to this the fact that they don't need too much yarn, and most of them knits up fast.
And my mania about colors and matching things up...
This season I knitted four of them for me...
Two of them you saw, the red Urchin, and the fair isle one.
Then I though I need some hat to match when I am wearing browns and rusty oranges.
I bought the yarn in the Burda shop. It is OnLine Aspento, and 5 mm straight but short bamboo needles. The pattern is a very heavily modified slouchy version of the Urchin.

A very important note on the pictures. They were shot by Christopher. The first time I let him use my camera on the WWKIP day turned out pretty well. Then I asked him to shot some of my FO's here and I think I have a budding photographer in my hands... He has it in his genes, my grandfathers on both sides did lot of photos and they were good, and his paternal grandma was a portrait photographer...

Back to the berets... I needed a purple one.

Wooly Wormhead's Meret (mystery beret). Done in one Sunday.

Hey, the berets turned out really cute! :) The colorway on the first one is totally you! ;) And you know how I feel about purple, too.
