Beret Easy!

I cast on for this last weekend. It was a really quick knit!

Yarn: Austermann Inca Colour in black.

Needles: Addi Turbos 3mm.

Pattern: Here it is!

I have also been working on Backyard Leaves from ‘Scarf Style’. I am using Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky and it is just delicious.

Look at those leaves pop!

This has been getting a lot of attention. I had a very bad day yesterday. I couldn’t get my printer to work (long story involving stress and making the post), I fell right down the stairs and promptly fainted, broke a photocopier, scalded myself with tea and broke my hair brush. After all of that, I felt reasonably entitled to some squishy knitting where I could rest my backside and its forty shades of purple!
