Winter Knitting

It is pretty cold here at the moment and so I haven't done a single stitch of sewing.  I have two paper patterns cut out and ready to begin, but I am not inspired yet.  They are two medium weight dresses that I just don't need in this weather.  I'm needing cosy polo-necks, vests, leggings and wool, WOOL, WOOL.
So I have knitted a couple of berets.  I don't wear them all slouched to one side, instead I pull them down over  my forehead and the tops of my ears to stay warm.
I call this my Autumn beret.  The yarn is from Noro, it has variegated browns and oranges with a bit of green in it too.
I didn't like any of the front photos so here's one of the back instead
I just finished knitting this one - I'm calling it my Blaeberry beret.
One of our cats not wanting to be seen in the hat either
This one is made from Shilasdair hand-dyed wool I bought whilst we were on holiday on the Isle of Skye, just off the west coast of Scotland.  It is in lovely shades of blueberry (blaeberry in Scots).
The pattern I used was a free download from Jo Sharp and it only takes one ball of wool.  I went online to search for the pattern to share the link here, but couldn't find it.  If any readers wish to have a copy of the pattern though, I can email it to you as an attachment.


  1. Oh what pretty little hats, keep you warm without hat head. :) g
