"She Wore a Raspberry Beret..."

Raspberry Beret

I'm taking a risk by posting this here, since it is a Christmas present. But it's just so cute, I couldn't help myself. And Oh. When I went to name the photos for my Flickr upload, I unwittingly named them after a certain song...but let me say, I hope you don't find this beret in any old second hand store...

Raspberry Beret

This is the same yarn (leftover) I used for the Forest Canopy Shawl. And the same pattern I used for my Turquoise beret made last summer. It was quick, it was easy and it will be appreciated.

The stuffed doggie was the most willing model I could find on Sunday morning.

Well, as a Minneapolis chick I just HAVE to comment on the Price-inspired beret--love it;)

I love the top so much, Knithound. It reminds me of a sea urchin, without the needles.

Hey there! that's a GREAT beret! I love it. And, this winter is all about the berets. :D

I also love your malabrigo cowl. The colors are so vibrant!

sorry i didn't make it yesterday. i didn't want to RSVP maybe because i don't like to leave people hanging. i was sorta hoping to be able to make it later in the afternoon and then got caught up getting the kids ready to go back to school and myself ready to go back to work.... :(

hope it was great!
