the 'branching out' scarf from knitty

a beret (and me trying to look french...  Wink)


another scarf - that one's for my cousin, who's a natural redhead - that green will look fabulous on her  Cheesy

two pairs of socks: one for my granny, who turns 80 in may and suffers from cold feet - just as myself
that's why i made another pair of really really thick ones for me. yes, spring can be quite cold in berlin!

two pairs of hand/wristwarmers: great to try out little patterns and/or use up nice yarn

a 'catnip friend' from 'oddball knitting' - an easter present for a friend of mine, who doesn't have a cat herself but who cares for all the neigbourhood's  Wink

and last but not least:
the 'flower petal shawl' from elann.com! a bit too small (as usual) but it's all my fault - should have used larger needles but my 5mm ones are much nicer and newer than my 6mm needles  Embarrassed

sorry for the weird background (it was still drying) but this was the only pic that made the color come out properly

Really beautiful work! That's a nice bundle of knitted stuff. You have some really lucky friends and family. Smiley

oh my, i second that beret pattern request.  very very nice.
it's all lovely.

You look very French! As my highschool French book showed me, everyone in France wears stripped shirts.

Everything looks fabulous, but the shawl is amazing! I've been eyeing it for a while, and am wondering if it is a good project. Also did you use the recommended yarn, the color looks similar to the one on theirsite?

Everything looks great! And the beret looks wonderful... My 'Branching out' didn't turn out that well... Wink

I've been thinking about knitting that shawl too, but I can't seem to find a suitable yarn, at least nothing that would resemble alpaca.

Im going to have to provide a third request for the wherebouts of the beret pattern  Grin. I am a big fan of everything in this post. Good work!

i got the beret pattern from the free pattern section of the lion brand homepage. i started off with the instruction but then i made the crown a bit flatter.

radioactivecrafter: i used austermann 'inka color', which is 70% alpaca and 30% wool
