Le béret - c'est fini!

That's right! Last night Sophie finished her first real knitting project. The beret from The Charmed Knits book, knit with Berroco Vintage Wool.
She knit the hat on a 16" circular, and did really well with the decrease rows see how nicely they line up?
(We only had to knit backwards a few times to fix mistakes - she has a habit of talking while knitting, and that's not always good when you are needing to pay attention to decrease counts!) Last night she mastered double pointed needles and was thrilled to model her beret for us. Now she just needs to figure out how to wear it - as berets allow numerous styling options.

Helen should be finished hers this afternoon. Next up, preemie hats. Then they can practice an entire project on double pointed needles.

That is so sweet! She is clearly very happy to have made it herself. Now you just need some cooler weather so she can wear it.
