Here's a free beret pattern. The pattern took longer to write than the time it took to knit the beret, in just a few short hours back in February. I just HAD to have a purple hat for brisk mornings! I love quick projects, especially when they're fashionable, functional, use only one ball of yarn, and can be a great gift.
As for the rest of my life, all is well with school, work, and family. My daughter is sprouting like a beanstalk - she's just two inches shy of my height! I'm trying to enjoy a little summer break with some swimming and knitting (not at the same time) but I have to refresh myself in Chemistry I & II before I get into both Organic and Analytial this Fall. I made straight A's again, so now I have two Chancellor's List certificates to frame upon my wall, and want to continue the trend.
