Outfit: Versatile Beret

I've mentioned quite a few times now that I've been learning how to knit; I'm really excited that I can now show you my second finished project! (You can see the first here).

It's not entirely finished - I need to put some ribbon around the edge and then it will be 100% done - I think I might just use white ribbon but I'm not sure.

You can see me wearing it with my perfect winter dress, too:

This is the pattern I used to make it (click to go to Flickr for a bigger version if you'd like to use the pattern yourself):

I'd also like to mention that I've started a blog to sell some of my clothes through, both vintage and non-vintage. It currently has nothing on it but I will start posting things to there soon (I have photos of 15 items, already, and will be photographing more) so if you'd like to stay updated you can follow it here.

Love,
Andi B. Goode
