Anyone who does read my blog knows that I always have a ton of projects going at once. So why wouldn't I jump on the chance to do a Mystery Beret? A hat designer on Ravelry called Woolly Wormhead has started a mystery beret group. When you join anything that has the word "mystery" in the title, you know that you won't know what it will look like until you are done...no picture ahead of time, just clues. So Clue #1 was the 2" k1p1 rib. Done! The second clue is the actually pattern of the beret, which is a very pretty lace pattern...Started! I am not a hat person at all so you might wonder why I would be making this? I don't have the right hair for hats - once they come off I can't go anywhere but home! But the idea of making a beret sounded appealing. And fun. So off I went - digging through my stash since I refused to buy any new yarn for a hat that might not even look good on me. I know the hat will be beautiful as all of Woolly Wormhead's hats are very cool. I have 3 girls in my family so if this doesn't work for me, then I have other heads to try it on!
Quilting, knitting, sewing... any kind of craft. Couldn't possibly forget wool applique and embroidery either. And did I mention that I like to make purses, totes and organizer bags? That is what I love to do. My greatest joy is making things for my family and friends. I have been a crafter since I was a little girl. I would sit for hours and watch my Mom and Aunts knit, crochet, sew, tat and embroider. They would hand me baskets of scraps and I would sit on the porch and make clothes and blankets for my Barbie dolls. That was many, many years ago. My greatest joy will be when I am able to sit with my grandchildren and teach them all about the wonderful world of crafting!!
