No, I'm not having a fling with an older man! That's the name of the beret that I test knit for Sarah - and she's got it up for sale now on Ravelry so I'm allowed to show it off! I don't so much love this picture, but I do love this little hat! The pattern actually has two hats in it - one (December) that's in a DK wt and reverse stockinette, and one (May) in fingering weight and stockinette, which is the one I knit. I've never done a hat in fingering weight, but I love it - it's so light. Note the little leaf lace pattern (it's on both hats) - I did a pretty crappy job catching that in the picture. oh, it's also a good way to use up a single skein of sock yarn if anyone is as stupid as I am and bought single skeins before they actually understood anything about sock knitting! or, if you're less stupid, it's just a good excuse to splurge on a single skein - the pattern calls for about 200 yards, but I have quite a bit of my 220 yd ball left. I used just a good old workhorse fingering weight wool for mine - Univeral Yarns Pace. I liked it a lot and it was only $4 at Fiberworks! I spent much more on needles, of course, because I had to get size 2 and 3 circs, and I was feeling full of myself that day I guess, and decided I deserved Addis. It's a bad thing to start. now I think I always deserve Addis!
