Big beret

Well, here is another try at the red beret for Jennie. I don't know, this one seems a little too big. I know, these heads are little heads, but this thing is just as big on my head. I do like the pattern, I'm just thinking one less repeat of the pattern before the decrease starts. I like the band, it's nicer than a lot I've seen. I think I'll try it again, just a little smaller. I'm thinking I might need one of these for the winter, maybe in that sparkly ILTY pink.... The back/top is cute, too. That bunching is not a mistake, it's part of the design. Again, this pattern comes from the booklet 'In All Caps' by The Crochet Dude. There are several other cute little hats in there as well.

........aaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnndddd......... I was at Walmart the other day, they had a cart sitting there with a big box of brand-new yarn they had not even set on the counter yet. Now folks, what they want you to do here, is to dig through those boxes, throw things around, and see if there's anything in there that you want. See, it saves them the trouble of putting it on the shelves. Did you know that? Bwahahaha! I know, I'm their favorite kind of customer! But the nice lady told me it was no problem (I told you, they want you to do that!) and said sure, take it. So I took that whole bag of this cute yarn. See, it's all red, white and blue! I've got a thing for red, white and blue, don'tchaknow. I took it all. You like it? Now I just gotta figure out what to do with it........

I love the red, white, and blue yarn! Great stuff. Have you decided what you'll make yet?

Very cute beret. I saw your post on my blog about Tunisian curling. All Tunisian does that but after you block it or put a border on it then it stops. There are also a couple of stitches you can do on the first row that will help. Don't give up. It's just so much fun!

P.S. Whatever you make with the Peaches & Creme, be sure and wash it in vinegar (after you finish) because it will bleed. I didn't the first time I used it. What a mess that was but soaking it in vinegar really made a difference.

Thanks for the tip, Bev. I actually have a friend who told me to soak clothes in vinegar before washing for the first time, but it never occurred to me to do so with handmade items as well.
