Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

WIP Wednesday

Emma's Star Beret from the Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders book (at least a start to it)
It's a top down construction.  I've never done a hat this way before.  I'm using Zara a 100% merino superwash DK weight and US 4 needles. 
So far I'm liking it.

Nice-looking hat.

Oh, I love that! I might have to "copy" you... Off to explore stash and find that book in my library.

That pattern looks really pretty.

I like it!!! You know, top down seems a very GOOD way to make a hat. I guess you just need to make sure you use a very stretchy bind off.

I like the look of it so far. I don't think I have ever tried starting a hat top down.

I knitted one top down once, but I made it too short. Hard to believe when you can try it on as you go, but I was true beginner then and anxious to finish...
ha ha hah. Love your greens

Ooo, that is gorgeous, both yarn and pattern. I also love the fingerless mitts you finished for yourself.

btw, my blog "Vintage Comfort" got hacked and virused so I started a new blog: Mary's Vintage Comforts". Stop by any time.
