Knits Shoots and Leaves
...or in this case, berries and leaves but I couldn't resist the corny title.
The Leaves and Berries Baby Bonnet is finished and what FUN it was to knit! That said, I do believe I've crossed the line with this one. I'm pretty sure this is something only another knitter would be delighted to receive.
Mary suggested I could just keep it myself and enjoy it for the object itself, and right now that's what I'm planning to do.
I would like to make this again when I find the perfect yarn. The Regia Silk worked out well and makes a nice fabric, but I think it would be lighter and more heavenly in a cashmere/silk blend. Meantime there is enough of the Regia to make the matching socks that Marilyn so graciously included a pattern for when she sent the pattern. Thanks, Marilyn!
