I quote my mother in law every year, just so I can get to my DH. Hmmmph, I bet the new year looked a lot like the old one after awhile. Well I don't know about new rules, but I'm looking forward to some interesting,exciting times. It's gotta be better that 2011, right?
I figured since Mochahantas is busily painting everyone's portrait, I would sneak in a post of my first finished object of the year...
Mon Raspberry Beret (more like strawberry)
Here are the particulars:
Pattern: I started from the center and increased 6 stitches every other row. I ran out of yarn so I only have a 1/2"-3/4" rim. I'll probably rip out the rim and redo the edge for a tighter fit. Scrap the aforementioned Bobby pin solution.
Yarn: 1 skein of Cascade Venezia and a US10 needle.
Review: Love the yarn, it's so soft and has a slight sheen. HOWEVER, it pills something horrible (yes, already). Probably won't buy it again ; (
Mochahantas has just declared she needs "sumpin' else to eat"! Yes sa boss sa! ... I gotta go!
