FO: Hershey

First up, I finally got a shot of Bean in her 4 month socks. Promptly at a day past 5 months. Ah well.

And now, for the FO...

pattern: Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret by Natalie Larson (Ravlink)
yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted (100% merino wool) in 512 (Chestnut) - less than 1 skein
needles: US10 and US11

This was kind of a spur of the moment knit. I wanted to knit something quick and something for me (for a change). A beret is never a bad idea, and I had this yarn in the ol' stash, so voila!

And hey, guess who else just made one of these? Yes, my girl Margaux! I think this makes our twin knits count at three (so far)? It's a testament to this cute beret that it's good for both dull-n-straight and gorgeously curly hair. So go make yourself one- you can't go wrong!

Changing gears, I want to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. I am truly grateful for this blog and all that it has brought to my life, including you. Even though we don't post as often as we used to we really do appreciate you still taking the time to check in with us. So thank you, for being a part of our lives. I hope you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!
