Completed Suzanna's beret. Really love the koigu colors. Also makes me want to learn to dye. Life really is too short.
Strongly recommend the Purl Bee beret pattern. A great foundation. Now that I've mastered this I'm ready to start experimenting! :-)
June YOTM Swatched (clockwise from upper left).
- Maraja by Ornaghi Filati
knit out at 4.75 sts/inch on US 8s
35% Cotton, 33% Acrylic, 32% Polyester
Surprised by how well I like this. Would make a lovely "fancy" knit bag. Had a nice little twinkle to it.
- Luna by Cascade Yarns
4.5 sts/inch on US 7s - this knit to projected gauge
Would also knit a lovely string shoppers bag.
- Hemp for Knitting DK by LanaKnits
5 sts/inch on US 5s
Why'd they need to specify that it's for knitting? Do desperate knitters try to light up? Very stiff yarn. Going to try this little swatch in the sink. Attempting to replace the Scotchbrite dish sponges. It may give good scrub.
- June by Nashua Handknits
5.5 sts/inch on US 5s
Knit fine but have no idea why I'd ever choose to use this yarn for a project. Nothing distinctive.
I love living in the country. When you go pick up your babysitter she asks if you need eggs. :-)

Which we had out to make cookies.
The stars at night are big and bright deep in the heart of Texas.
Totally grooving on Nigella's Feast cookbook.
These were super easy and yummy. Note: usage of past tense.
