A ribbed beret

 In our neck of the woods it is snowing...again.
At the beginning of the week there was only a little snow on the yard.
Then it snowed, almost melted, and this evening the mountain is encircled with clouds
and we are being sent more white stuff....sigh!
 The only good thing about this cold weather is
that it keeps the girls and I crafting.
Today they created "Fortresses" with popsicle sticks and hot glue,
while I knitted.
What a lovely day!
 My oldest daughter is modeling the beret I finished over spring break.
It fits her a little better than her younger sister.
But her little sister has made it clear, she isn't getting it.

I am really happy how the beret turned out.
Some comments said that it turned out larger than they wanted.
So, I really watched my tension and decreases,
and think the end result is lovely.

Its not just the Ladies who wear Berets LOL.
I'm at an all male college and we all wear Berets with our uniform (because we have to!!!).
It is a nice colour scheme though, even though it could use a PomPom like my uniform Beret :p
