Berets away

Way back at the beginning of November, I made myself a hat, but I never got around to getting decent pics of the FO. Finally, yesterday, I got some...
 The pattern is the Lightweight Raspberry Beret - my go-to pattern for a fingering weight beret.
The yarn was Patons Kroy FX in "Clover Colours." It think it's the absolute perfect combination of yarn an pattern.

And yes, those are the fingerless mitts I showed the other day - Mom made them specifically to go with my hat. And of course, the hat was made to go with my fabulous red coat!

I really like your beret and the fingerless mitts - they make a lovely set and look good with your red coat!

You wear a hat better than anyone I know!!! The mitts and beret are beautiful. Hope they keep you snuggly warm when the snows start to fall.
