Productive

Beret
from Patons Head to Toes flyer 2004
Yarn: Briggs and Little Regal
Needles: 3.5mm straights for brim, 4mm for hat body

Wrist Warmers
from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Yarn: Natural llama purchased at the Winter Fair
Needles: Size 4mm circulars. The pattern calls for 2 short sets but I worked on 80mm length and worked in a loop. Easy.
Modifications: The thumb hole was just a slit. I wanted a bit more coverage so I picked up 10 stitches, worked around 3 rows of garter stitch, then cast off.

And yes...I am aware that my bathroom mirror needs a cleaning.

Cute! I especially love the wristwarmers peeking out from inside your new beret :)

So will you make it to drunken knitting this friday?

Hey, nice wrist things! I do love that pattern! I bought some circs this weekend and Michelle showed me the loop technique so I could make them that way too.
