Forever a Classic
Summer is finally here and I couldn’t be happier! I’m a yarn addict till the end, but I must admit that even I have a hard time picking up my yarn and staying inspired during the warmer months. There’s just something about the warm weather that makes me what to explore the city and have many a cookout.
Having finished up all of my winter projects, for half a second I was unsure of what I wanted to make next. Then all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks, “Make a beret!” my intuition said, and so I listened. As I scoured the internet for just the right pattern, I thought about my grandmother who used to wear beret's quite frequently. In the back of my mind I felt like I needed to find one that she would approve of. I think she would like this one just fine. :)
I think berets are such a classic look. It doesn’t matter if they are trendy or not, you can still wear one and feel good about what you have on. This red one is the first one that I made and it worked up beautifully without a hitch! As I do with everything that I make, I tried it on myself first to see how it would fit. To my surprise it fit very comfortably on my head and didn't fall off! I have a lot of thick hair and sometimes it's impossible for hats like this to stay on my head, but I'm here to tell all the thick haired girls, this hat is perfect for us!
It is my goal to find and work at least two craft shows this year. Doing a craft show always begs the question of what to take and in what colors? I think this little beret is a winner and one that I wouldn't mind making a lot of.
What colors would you like to see this in and what would you wear with it?
Until the next time,
