I finished this Star-Crossed Slouchy Beret (Ravelry link) a few weeks ago and have actually been getting good use out of it here in chilly Southern California. Don’t laugh, it’s been getting down into the forties here and while many of you have been suffering far worse, this is definitely knitted accessory weather!

And what better than to snuggle with some Malabrigo yarn which I think may be my very favorite yarn ever. I’ve now used their lace yarn, their sock yarn and this was my first time using their worsted yarn and I absolutely love them all! So soft. Such great colors/dying. And compared to other luxury yarns, the price is pretty reasonable as well. It’s all good!
While I’ve been wearing this beret nearly every day, I also just finished another one tonight which is blocking right now so photos and details yet to come on that one.
And yes, two berets constitutes “mania”. Plus I’ve got several others all ready to get started. It’s official, I’m hooked on berets. Pourquoi pas?
