I haven’t shown you any knitting lately because I haven’t finished many projects. I have a number of bigger ones on my needles and they just go on and on.
BUT, I did finish this hat. It’s very fuzzy and soft. The best way to block a beret is on a dinner plate, which is where it is here:

The combination is fun and bright for those winter days. I realized as I was knitting that I’ve worked in this colour combination before – I made a pair of gloves in two shades of Kidsilk Haze (more fuzzy mohair!) but seldom wear them because they don’t go with anything else.
