A milky hat

16 Apr

I did promise in A new winter wooly that I would share photos of the hat I knitted just after Christmas – also known as the first thing I ever knitted! So here goes…

It was the cable beret from Sirdar 9069.

I knitted it out of a luscious green yarn, that is made out of milk protein! Yep – milk!

Here’s how it turned out…

I was pretty happy with it to be honest – not bad for a first crack at knitting I say 😉

I did make it in summer so I haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but I do love a chunky beret during the colder months so it should get some wear soon.

    You are super clever and what gorgeous yarn! I get too impatient for knitting, I need instant gratification.

      Thanks Karen! Maybe you should knit things for babies – small and quick :)!
