Surprise! Actual knitting content! Have been working on a few small projects between bursts of pre-holiday cleaning and homeschool work. Here’s a finished “Springtime in philadelphia beret” (PDF link) A free pattern from Zeitgeist yarns. It’s knit in Noro Silk Garden Sock from The Loopy Ewe. I used US 0 and 1’s to get some semblance of gauge. (I have gauge issues) I love what the noro did with this pattern- very snowflake like:)
Snowflake like seems to be appropriate- as Michigan keeps trying to SNOW.
Hello- global warming? I think not.
More soon- I’m working, working, working!

I’ve been knitting a giftie.. for an online pal. Shhh! It’s finished and should be arriving today:) It’s a variation on the “Simple Yet Effective Shawl”, from Cosmicpluto. ( a rather amazing designer:)
Noro Silk Garden sock (about 1 1/2 balls) from the Loopy Ewe In colorway S269 (the silk garden sock is softer than the noro sock- but still not my favorite yarn.
US size 4s. Addi Lace needles.
Changed the number of rows per section.
I knit till I got tired of knitting on it- it’s larger than the original. (I didn’t measure- and it’s already on it’s waty to it’s new home)
I didn’t bother changing balls of yarn- just knit a single colorway.
