Happy Halloween! October 31, 2015 17:25

Yes, it’s Halloween. The happy fall holiday that for most folks means pumpkins, ghosts, costumes and trick or treaters. If you’re a knitter it also means, “hey, you better get some holiday gifts done.”

This Yellow Seed Stitch Beret is the perfect quick      holiday knit that still feels like fall. Chunky yarn,   lovely fall color, and an easy project. I’m headed out on a flight to Portland tomorrow, and I’m taking this project along. The yarn is yummy Julie Asselin Ankara in warm autumnal Jaipur.

We do a bit of traveling this time of year, and I always like to have a project to take along. Something easy to memorize, so I’m not digging around for my pattern, and relatively small, so I have a sense of accomplishment when I return. By Thanksgiving I plan to have a few of these hats finished up – one for me, and two more for gifts!
