Never too Busy to Knit

The Red Beret completed
Needle:  US 8 / 5.0 mm - circular 24"  + dpn
Yarn: Patons Shetland Chunky Tweeds
How much: 2 skeins = 246.0 yards (224.9m)
Colorway: red w/multi
CAA kindly modeled the RED Beret.  Turned out larger (as usual) so I washed/dried a couple times & that helped.  Now it fits Liz; she can wear walking in the morning.  Here is the link to the Rollin' Beret 
Free Pattern I used from RAVELRY:

THEN, I was looking for something to do (other than the 2 blankets & shawl already started) 
 I used up 2 balls of Noro from the stash. Just haven't been happy with the (at least) 4 projects I've knit & frogged & returned to stash.  So here, finally:
