Another beret, and a mitten.

I don't like it

I did the recommended double ribbing, and it's way too loose, I think it's not just the ribbing but the huge number of stitches it has you cast on, I probably should have cast on as for the smaller size and then increased way more. Then the weird increases to the middle, make it an odd shape while wearing, and it doesn't 'flop' right.

Ah well, a learning experience.

I used my own hand dyed wool, and AM very happy with the way the semi solid variegation worked out, very neat. I liked it so much I dyed up another skein in teal.

Then worked up a mitten pattern to use the leftover blue/purple, and the teal together.

I'm really; really happy with the way these are turning out. I finished the first in one day, and have already finished the ribbing on the second.

I used the generic Norwegian mitten pattern from Hello Yarn

I wanted to say that I like the semi-verrigation that your yarn has! Super subtle! Very nice! Great mitten too!
