FO: Springtime Beret
Pattern: Springtime in Philadelphia (Rav project page)
Yarn: Fibre Co Canopy Fingering
This was a fun, quick project. It's worked from the top down. I love how it looks like a flower. The pattern calls for the hat to be blocked over a 10" plate, which I did. But then when it was all dry, I spilled coffee on it, and didn't re-block it, just laid it to dry, which gives it a softer look.
This yarn is great! It was my first time using any Fibre Co yarn. I got this while we were in Toronto in March--part of my souvenir from our trip.
The final look of the hat, though, I'm not so sure about. As evidenced by the following:
My head is too big for tams. So this hat is up for grabs. Anyone want it?
(Also, please ignore how tired I look....it's been a week since I had a good night's sleep, thanks to this persistent arm pain I have following a tetanus shot last week. Oy.)
