Last Beret (for a while...)

I've just finished another Molly beret and it is in a really pretty yarn.  The pictures had to be taken with flash (it's almost Winter here) but the colour is pretty close to true.

21st century top

21st century brim

Lace pattern brim

The middle picture shows the colour best - a sort of muted mixture of sweet pea shades.  I've had the yarn for years - it came from 21st Century Yarns, who are based in Oxfordshire, England.  I went to visit their shop and, of course, came away with many goodies!  It was about 6 years ago that I found a shade card from them whilst I was clearing my house prior to coming to live in France.  At that time (of the shade card) they were called 20th Century Yarns! Obviously they changed their name when the twentieth century became the twenty-first!

So, I'm going to knit some more hats now - but this time for Innocent bottles!

The last beret is a beauty.
I've really enjoyed your mitts and beret production.
Of course I keep hoping to see another bunny one of these days :)
