Thanks to those of you who posted in response to my beret question. While this pattern says it is a's probably more like a tam. Either way the recipient called today to say she loved it! I'm a bit late in getting the pictures posted because my mother is in the hospital at the moment. She fell and broke her leg and is looking at some time in a skilled nursing facility to heal. She's only 56 so believe me when I say that was a bit unexpected.

I hope you enjoy the beret pictures. The pattern can be found at and for the first time I think mine looks really good.

On a final note...I'm disclosing my New Year's resolution early...I will respond to at least 3/4 of the posts on this site. I really need to start responding more so that's it...respond more often.
