This was a lot of fun and is actually wearable. The sleeve cap is a bit funky, but ok. Biggest mistake was not using smaller needles for the ribbing. Here's the pic from the original pattern.

Thanks to those of you who posted in response to my beret question. While this pattern says it is a beret...it's probably more like a tam. Either way the recipient called today to say she loved it!
and strangely it had extremely well known actors in it, and I mean WELL KNOWN ACTORS, The Rock, Seann William Scott, Sarah Michelle Gueller, Justin Timberlake and it was JUST BAD....LOOK INTO IT....
Here is a sampling of some things I have done recently.
I do not take good photos so forgive that. I also do not take good notes as far as yarn, needle size etc.
Hey guys, I've been expanding my friends list on Ravelry... If I haven't added you yet, Add me!!!

Well I am going to be working on my partner's Scarf this weekend. I know that I am doing a great job as I want to keep the scarf for myself lol!
I have mastered the knit stitch and pearl stitch. I have finally learned how to rip and put the yarn back on the correct needle. I am hoping that I can now finish a project.
Several of you have mentioned interested in it... I thought I'd put it up for a direct discussion.
We're coming up on a great starting date: January 1, 2009
