Another FO, and I absolutely love it. It’s a Purl Beret, knit up in some lovely hand-dyed sock yarn from Dharmafey. The colourway is called Josef Kostan, after the ancient/perpetually horny vampire on the now cancelled show, Moonlight. That show was awesome…
I love this yarn. It’s super soft and all the different shades of blue are stunning. The pictures really don’t do the colour justice. The pattern was a bit harder to deal with. It was easy enough, but it involved loooong stretches of stockinette, and when done in fingering weight, can make you go nuts! I love the finished product though, so the pain was worth it.
I took this photo before I blocked it (doh!). It now has a bit more drape to it. Blocking is kind of amazing. This thing went from lumpy to sleek overnight – awesome!
I now totally love hats. I have a couple more (similar) patterns that I want to make and wear, once I finish some of my other WIPs. Back to my knitting!
