2 x 2 + 1 + 1.....

The equation above refers to the amount of times I have knitted two items.

We have Meret (Mystery Beret).
I knitted this almost all the way to the end before realizing that my gauge was off because the circulars were too long and when the crown decreases were beginning my mind was reading the directions in a way other then they were written.
This beret is now done. It's in Malabrigo worsted and the color name is Cabernet. Oh, that sounds good right now. MMM....
I love this pattern. If I were to knit it again I think I would go for another repeat to give it a little slouch.


2 + 1 + 1....
We have Damson. Oh my! I knit this all the way through from Christmas night until January 4th with such determination.
A lot of trauma with this as I ran out of yarn and had to remove stitches in pattern (over 300 on sock yarn mind you), place them back on, purchase another skein and then finally finish it only to realize I had done something wrong early on. That's right. I even kind of knew in the back of my mind something was wrong. So, then I started again, made another mistake and then started again yesterday. I am one determined girl and I will get this shawl right and finished.

My cappuccino is now almost done so I will end this post. Thank you for all the nice comments on my blouse. I really love it and am wearing it. The fit, style, everything is just perfect. I am so happy with it.
