What do you do when you’re big sis hits a milestone birthday? Well, in my case you knit. And because I’m the teasing little sister, I knit in black. I couldn’t be too bad after all, I do have a younger sister and will also eventually hit this milestone.
Here’s me modeling the beret. I’d put a pic of my glamorous sis up, but she’s all the way across the country.
Pattern: Speedy Cabled Beret (the term speedy is NOT used lightly here)
Yarn: Rowan Alpaca Soft
Alterations: converted to knitting in the round
Since I had plenty of yarn left and I was on a fingerless mitt kick:
I still had yarn left over so I knit a super quick (and slightly boring) long skinny scarf with fringe.
I wish it could have been longer, but not only has this yarn been discontinued, it was supposed to just be a project to use up the yarn. Buying a 5th skein would have defeated that purpose. I think it took me longer to package and mail this gift than actually knit it. I’m bad that way.
Happy very belated birthday big sis!
