My best friend (hey there, you knew this was coming, right?) happens to look fabulous in hats. When I got the Debbie Bliss Knitting magazine, I couldn't wait to show her the pattern for the cabled beret. I knew she would love it.
She was my roommate in college. When I got her name and number in the mail, the summer of 93 I called her right away.
I told her I liked to get up early, and dress up.
Seems she liked to sleep in, and wear hats.
Hmmm, really didn't matter though. I believe we became best friends at first sight. She lives in New York, I live here in Maine and we see each other often. A few times a year we get together and shop, get our toenails done, eat McDonald's way too late at night, look at decorating magazines, and talk about what we will do when we meet again.
I think she will like this one.
Pattern: Cabled Beret, Debbie Bliss Knitting magazine Fall/Winter 08
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted, in Pale Khaki (so dreamy) one skein
I really love this pattern. I just may have to make one for myself.
