Baroness

Thank you all dearly for the birthday wishes. I am so touched! My family and I shared a wonderful day, and I feel so loved.

Even though I have been knitting for over 5 years, up until last week, I had never knit anything for myself. Needing a hat for the winter, I decided to knit myself up a little beret (the Baroness Beret for those on Ravelry) in honour of my birthday.


It was a very quick knit, and I am in love with the results. (Knit with Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton, for those who are curious.)

As it happens, the week of my birthday also coincided with a week of wicked teething for my wee-est lad. Lots of sleepless nights and homeopathy, and we are still recovering. Proper post coming soon, lovelies.

And, thank you, thank you again for the love.

Beautiful hat. My knitting skills are quite rudimentary, so I'm very impressed by this lovely creation. It can't have been easy!
