The prettiest beret in the world

Although you’ve already seen it in the photos from yesterday, I wanted to gush about my new red beret :)

red lace

The pattern is the Ishbel Beret by Ysolda Teague, and I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed knitting something more. The yarn I used—a cashmere, merino and microfibre blend—was so lovely to knit with too, it just made the whole experience perfect! At one point I had to frog because of a mistake I made in the lace, but I was having a such a good time I didn’t mind at all. In fact, I was even looking forward to knitting it all again, because, well, I’d get to knit it all again.

happy

Can’t say I’ve ever felt that before.

In any case, I now have the most beautiful red beret, the subject of many envious groans. Which means it fits in well with the rest of my wardrobe, the philosophy of which is ‘if it doesn’t make other people jealous, it’s not worth wearing’.

sooooo pretty

Now I’m off to Stitch n Bitch, where I’ll hopefully have a chance to boast a bit more!

    the detail in the pattern is so delicate – very lacy and feminine!
    Think I might print off a pic to show oma.
