Bousta Beret

This is Gudrun Johnston’s Bousta Beret – a birthday present for Jane. I love the Horseshoe lace pattern, and the fact that the name – Bousta – means farm in Old Norse. It seemed like the right beret for Jane!

Tweed Mitts

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Another pair of fingerless mitts knit from Lucy Findlay’s wonderfully bobbly pattern. This pair belongs to Jane. The dark grey with flecks of colour seemed perfect for her, and for the season ahead.

I used a felted alpaca tweed, Grignasco Tango, which I was sad to learn is no longer in production. I picked up this batch at River City Yarns while in Edmonton visiting my little sister. If you’re ever in the area, stop in. They have great staff and wonderful yarns.
