House Socks

I thought I posted this the other day but don't know where I sent this in cyber space! These were fun and were Christmas gifts to my better half a few days AFTER the big day. Doubled up Manos using Fiber Trends pattern. My first real "heel" experience (did a pair of spiral socks for a Christmas gift). So, I had so much fun I began my first sock day after Christmas. I am enjoying using #2 dp needles but my hands are kinda big. (Know what they say about BIG hands--big gloves!)It takes practice I guess. So thanks to all you sock lovers for your inspiration.
Happy New Year,
Matthew

WOULDN'T YOU JUST KNOW IT!

As a gesture of kindness and friendship,I offered to knit something for a friend who's mother died last month. She has requested a "beret". Can any of you men point me in the right direction for finding knitted beret or tam-o'shanter patterns. It seems to me that berets lend themselves more naturally to crochet technique, but I don't crochet, and am not inclined to learn at this time.

Thanks,

J.
