Double Quick

Two quick projects to share today ... one practical and one not.

Dolan Beret_1
Pattern: Dolan Beret by Leah B. Thibault
Yarn: Quince & Co. Osprey in the Bird's Egg colorway
Needle: US7/4.5mm 16-inch circ

What a fun knit ... all those knits and purls really pop in the Aran-weight Osprey. And the color is incredibly lovely. This beret's going to get lots of wear!

Here's something for that person on your gift list who has everything:

Chickie Baby
Pattern: Tiny Chicken, from Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec
Yarns: various leftover sock yarns
Needles: US 1/2.25mm dpns

If everyone you know already has a 1 1/2-inch tall knit chicken, no problem. Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi also has mermaids, fried eggs, baked potatoes, garden gnomes, aliens, and more.

Beautiful hat! The chick may be less practical, but it's cute. Not everything has to have a clearly determined function.
