Not all designs come from the trips to exotic locales, hoarfrost articulating the last surviving plant life, or even the interesting way light dances upon the fall leaves. Some designs are inspired by the mundane, the necessary, the painful, and the low rumbling hum drum of life.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!
Or in the casebook of knitters, when yarn gives you leftovers make a beret!
And that’s exactly the catalyst behind Deep Waters Beret. I had a cavity, UGH, and was in the midst of growing out my untamed hair, double UGH. So with the 50 grams of leftover yarn from Oceanic, I decided to design a beret to subdue those unruly strands while my cavity was filled.
Afterwards, I discovered I really loved the design. It was quick to knit and was surprisingly cool in the 85+ degree temperatures on the dreaded day.
With nothing but scorchers in the forecast, I thought how fun it would be to pair this fun design with teaching Puddles how to swim for the first time.
Enjoy the outtakes!
