First FO

Huzzah! Despite thesis insanity and knitting insanity, I managed to make a beret, which I am going to donate somewhere. It's adult-sized (kinda big, I might felt it if I can figure out felting). So where should I send it?

[Today was also my last day of classes, and I finished the beret in my last class and showed it to everyone, and I'm in a general ecstatic mood.]

And now I'm at the time where I can start making more things for charity! I might try the whole knitting to gauge and making squares thing. Who knows what will come of my newfound freedom?

And pictures, beacuse I can.

Love the colours. What's the yarn?

Jorie-thanks!
Nehnhaa- The yarn is Paton's classic blend merino wool, the color is Rosewood. It's a pretty good yarn to work with, and 1 skein goes a long way. I've also made a calorimetry for myself with the yarn, and it also came out nicely.
