Well, kids, this is one of the fastest knits ever. I call it Raspberry Beret (of course - what else?) and I used one strand of blue and one strand of purple held together.It matches the fingerless gloves I made in the spring.Both were knit with Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, available on-line from knitpicks.com. The beret is from a pattern in a book and the gloves are from a pattern on-line.
In other knitting news, I found a pattern for that bamboo yarn - it's a Diamond Shawl.
It turns out to be a great deal on that yarn, because it will take me pretty much forever to finish knitting it. (The diamond shawl pattern is free on-line from lionbrand.com.)
