This is so lightweight and soft and quite an easy pattern to follow. I just wish I had more lace weight yarn in my stash as the result is so nice. I really don't want to buy more as I need to use up so much!
This year quite a few people will be the lucky recipients of something crocheted for Christmas. It's one way to use up yarn bought on a whim but of course there's the fact I need no more scarves/hats/wrist warmers myself.
So that is what I shall be making from now on. I know its that word already but it will creep up and be upon us all too soon as September has just flown by!
I started a beret out of some lovely sock yarn, that was never going to become a pair of socks, but I hadn't followed the pattern quite right and also thought the hook could have been smaller but it was a bit too far in so I kept going.
I decided I would do a second one switching to a smaller hook and following the pattern properly as my first one didn't spiral out from the centre as it should have as I wasn't placing the stitches right.
It is much better but has used up more yarn and now I've run out. and I have nothing in my stash to go with it. I'd even weighed the beret and what was left of the ball and it should have worked out!
I think I'll undo up to the turning of the first beret to finish the second, as that one is much nicer and hope that a bit of something turns up to complete the first.
