Tres Bien

Thank you all for your kind words for Mom's birthday. I think Janice gets the suck up award and I now am feeling guilty about not giving Mom any of the yarn from the photos! Mom had a wonderful birthday and enjoyed all of your messages.

My hat craze continues with the latest installment pictured here. This summer Horsey Girl's friend Kelly spend a few days with us while her parents were out of town. It just so happened that I finished HG's hat while Kelly was here. She ooo'd and ahhhh'd over it so I asked if she would like one. Her face lit up and she asked me if I could make her a beret. A Beret??? Well I set off to find a pattern and found the lovely Snowflake Beret in a Vogue Caps & Hats Two. I had some trouble with it in the beginning so I surfed around the web and found several additional beret patterns which I love. But I was determined to make the Snowflake Beret as it was my favorite. I finally figured it out but now I have all these other patterns I want to make. Question is - how many folks truly wear berets? We may be finding out!

Well, I hope this does not duplicate, it didn't take the first one. That beret is gorgeous. My 16 year old daughter loves berets, as do many of her friends. I am sure you will have no trouble finding people to wear them.

I love the beret. I think I would wear one. Here hats are more for fashion than bad weather. Well, the when the weather makes for a bad hair days...then the hats are a necessity. LOL =0)

Wow! Is there a prize for the biggest suck up award?? (Maybe a skein of that yummy yarn....) I LOVE the snowflake beret. Way to stick with it. It turned out great. Kirstin has a beret that she loves to wear.

Beautiful snowflake beret...one can never have too many hats that is if you wear them! Looks like an interesting pattern to knit.

I probably wouldn't wear a beret now because I'm so short, but I did wear one in college. My mom loves them.
