so happy together

friend, blogger and fellow knitter christy of knitting pretty in dc has had a big week. not only did she study for and successfully complete the GREs, she also managed to publish a new knitting pattern. the "it all comes together" beret is her stellar sophomore effort.

you might remember her first foray into pattern writing, the perfectly delightful prettybird neckwarmer. not long after its release, it joined the chickadee cast-on club and the results were pretty indeed.

for the beret, this chickadee got a jump on the competition and gladly accepted an offer to be a test knitter. it look less than one skein of the alpaca yarn company's glimmer to make this jaunty cap. the sprinkle stitch that makes up the body of the beret sparkled with flecks of gold that were spun right into the yarn. the chapeau's crowning glory are the rows of reverse stockinette that make up the very middle. a joy to knit and a pleasure to wear, you'll want to add "it all comes together" to your knitting queue too.

way to go christy! can't wait for lots more lovely knits and purls from knitting pretty in dc.
