Emilia's hat

My first FO of 2008, a beret for Emilia. I used the pattern in Erika Knight's Simple Knits for little Cherubs. I used Rowan wool cotton for it's 'no-itch' quality, used 4mm needles instead of 3.75mm and added 2 extra increase rows, so the total number of stitches before decreasing was 144. Doesn't she look grown up!
I'm going to write up Sullivan's birth story in a minute, before I forget too much!

funny, I've been itching to knit a beret but I know I'd look daft in one so I don't bother...Millie looks gorgeous in hers, love the colours!

My, she looks like such a little lady in that hat! Very classy, elegant, and absolutely adorable.
