A week or two ago I got a phone call from (one of) my lovely sister. She was at Target looking for a beret, but the only one they had was a sort of "eh" color. Now naturally she was calling to see if I thought the color mattered, or would it be over shadowed by the cute slouchyness? What was a knitting sister to do? As I stood there, up to my chin in painting my foyer/hallway in stripes (pictures soon!), I heard myself saying something like "Oh, well if it isn't pretty don't get it, I can make you one in like, two evenings!" It was agreed upon and I got back to my painting. I totally forgot about the hat, until a few days before my sister got into town. A quick trip to the yarn store yielded some yummy Rowan tweed in the perfect shade of purple... and it turns out I was right, you can totally make a beret in two evenings. ;-)
(see? Totally Lovely Sister)
