Purl Beret and more....

Another hat for L. Moving on to wool now since it is getting colder. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd's Sock in Shadow which is not this color, but I thought the contrast was too harsh for what I wanted, so the hat took a bath in some Irish Breakfast tea. It was a little more orange than I had hoped, but I think a few washes will fade it out a bit. The pattern is the Purl Beret from Purl Bee and it is a quick and easy knit.

Here's Chocho, my sweet old kitty looking very disapproving. Okay, so some of my decrease stitches are wonky, I know!

A modelled shot, C#2 wanted to be today's model. Ignore the white cat hairs on his "I want to be cool so I refuse to wear a coat, and instead I will wear this stupid hooded sweatshirt as long as I possibly can" sweatshirt. I act like it doesn't bother me, but if he gets pneumonia my head will explode.

Some views of the top of the hat to show some interesting pooling...and Ollie just hamming it up for the camera...

wait.. Ollie...NOOooooooooo!

"Hey Franklin! I'z ready for next year's "Kittehs with Yarn" calendarz!"

God, those cat pictures are something. It almost makes me want to make mine pose. You need to make a tiny matching beret for Ollie.
