I'm been trying to up my lace knitting skills so I knit the Spring Beret (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-beret) recently. I used Tahki Yarns Palma (a very pretty organic cotton that was gifted to me) in a pretty pink color. I used a little more than a full skein on size US 8 & 9 needles.
This is a pic of it blocking on a small mixing bowl. I used the mixing bowl perched on a candlestick holder to get the lace streched out and down so it would dry quickly.
And other pic after it was done drying and sitting on the table.
I really like the ring of darker pink on the crown. Once I got going (after ripping it out twice) it was a pretty simple knit. I'm tempted to make another in another color. What do you think, dear reader?
