I finished a project!
This is the Rose Window Beret by Anne Kuo Lukito. It was featured in the Spring 2010 Interweave Knits issue.
I bought the yarn, a nice wool, at Gate City Yarns (Greensboro, N.C.) two Decembers ago and just now got around to using it. I began the project sometime in June and finished it during our drive to D.C. for vacation in August.
I had to restart the project a couple of times because I was teaching myself how to read a lace pattern. With some help from several sites, I was able to get turned around. Here’s a few places to start: Knit Picks (I used this reference a lot), the For Dummies site (the publisher of the For Dummies books) and Knitty.
The hat doesn’t look exactly like it should because I haven’t blocked it yet. I really should do that so the pretty lace pattern shows up.
I love this pattern! I might make another to give away.
