Q1 Challenge - done

I finished my Q1 projects (yeah! I wasn't sure I'd make it). But I'm really not happy with the beret. I'm hoping I only hate it because it looks awful on me. Luckily I had planned to give it to one of those fantastic friends who loved knitted gifts (and isn't a knitter) and who would wear a one sleeved sweater with pride, if you made it for her. Still, I may rip it and start over.

The Chevron Scarf and Beret go together - although the purples aren't quite as close as I thought they would be. The other scarf is going out into the world on it's own.


Chevron Scarf - I skein each of a purple koigu and an olive koigu. 52" long

Le Slouch - by Knit and Tonic. 1.2 skeins Kathmandu Aran Tweed. The colour is closer in the pics on my blog.

Diagonal Lace Scarf - 1 Skein Malabrigo in "Vaa". This scarf knits up fast and looks great. After blocking it's about 58"
