This is a second beret, different pattern than the previous one I had done with another red yarn. This yarn is SO soft and luscious and I just fell in love with it. It was a really simple pattern but sat on my table most of the month until I decided to hurry and finish it so I'd have something to show for February. Currently working on a scarf to match of my own creation, so expect to see that in March's post.

I think I'll have plenty of this yarn to work with! Bought two skeins and didn't even use a full one on the beret. Yay dark red yarn.

Since the project I'm currently on is not going to be finished by the end of January, I'll save it for next month and share what I *have* completed.

Pet Society Poo
Originally this was going to be a Ridiculous Birthday Present to my brother, but then Molly got her slimy nose all over it and after I washed it it didn't look very pristine anymore, so he didn't get it. (Sorry, Jacob.)

Yellow Rose
I didn't get a picture of this one because it got thrown out accidentally. Dan saw it in the trash and didn't know it was something I wanted. *sigh* Moving on. It wasn't that exciting and not something I think I'd do on a regular basis. It would be really cute on a hat, but is useless except as decoration.

Thought it would be nice for Molly to have a scarf that was cute, simple, and girly without being nauseating. I liked this pattern because it was cute as well as practical (the loop holds the scarf together so it won't always be falling off).

And, because everyone needs matching scarf-and-mittens, I made her these thumbless mitts. That she hates. Once she's outside she kinda forgets they're on, which is nice.

Hook Roll
And finally, something very practical: a roll to store all my hooks so that I'm not constantly rooting around in a drawer full of yarn looking for loose hooks and hoping I happen upon the right size.


I promise, I am not planning to only use rainbow yarn for everything I make this year. It's just that I liked it so much at the fabric store many years ago that I bought several skeins, rolled them into a Big Huge Ball, and then months later bought more of a different (paler) dye lot and rolled that into a Smaller Ball. The scarf/mittens are of the brighter, prettier dye lot. The roll is the anaemic dye lot.
