"The web of our lives is of a mingled yarn, good and ill together." -- William Shakespeare
I just finished blocking several of the berets I made for the upcoming holiday craft fairs. I love them! Warm, cheerful, full of color. A bright note to dull winter days. They are my antidote to the dark and drab winters of Chicago.
You can find them and more berets and beanies at these upcoming holiday markets:

, Friday 4-7, Saturday, 10-3, Sunday 11-5, Steerterville Artisan Market

In addition to my collection of beanies and berets, I'll have a small collection of knit purses and moth repellant herbal sachets in 4 wonderful scents - cedar shavings, rosemary / peppermint, lavender / thyme / rosemary and clove / lemon peel / black pepper.
