Feature Pattern – Lambert Beret

I finished my hat today, mother’s day conveniently enough.  Go me!  I absolutely love it.  I got to use up half of my op-shop yarn and now have enough left over to make another.  It is an angora look yarn that is so soft and fluffy.   I haven’t used anything like it before actually.

I began with the intention of making this Lambert Beret Pattern but along the way decided to make it more of a baggy cap then a beret.  I stuffed up the lace at one stage and just couldn’t bring myself to start again so went with it and am so glad I did.  It’s not so rigid and organised, but still close enough to not look like a random mess.  I think it suits the fluffy yarn.  It was very forgiving.  I added a little cord to the top of the hat to finish it off.  Very vintage imo.  Very happy with it indeed.

Again, if you are into yarn crafts check out Ravelry.  So many awesome patterns and a very friendly community.


My Creative Space – Easter Aftermath.

Right now I feel like nothing more then sitting on my butt and knitting away on something cute for myself.  I tend to get myself all worked up on all the things I want to make for my store, a new skill I want to learn, repairing and refashing old clothing ect.  But atm the kids are sick, I’m getting sick and we are all trying to catch up on a big trip up to QLD over easter.  So I think I will just make myself take it easy.

I’m using the fab yarn I found at the op-shop the other week and a cute pattern on Ravelry.   If you are into knits do make an account.  It’s free and its a wealth of info and patterns.
