Knits and Wits...

... at least, I hope for wit!  There ought to be a law against mid-terms extending across more than two weeks.  My first mid-term was in class, on October 30th, and my last mid-term is due next Thursday, on the 19th!  I have to say, though, this paper I just finished, on Paul Otlet and the International Institute of Bibliography, is quite awesome-- toot, toot!  
I've been knitting like a crazy person to take a break (read: procrastinate) from all these mid-terms, but I can't post pictures of any of it, because they're all gifts... except for the lovely Star Crossed Slouchy Beret (you can click through this link if you're a Ravelry member-- and if you're not, get on it!), designed by Natalie Larson (all her patterns are adorable!).  My favorite part of this pattern, aside from the slouchyness, is that star spiral on the top-- of course, I was working on this pattern on the bus, and thought I knew how it should go, and ended up with something totally different.  I still love it, though.

Thanks to the Infamous Lady for posing for this shot-- it's incredibly difficult to take good pictures of yourself in a hat.

Oh, your beret turned out just beautiful! And it looks gorgeous on you! Of course, you always look cooler than cool!

The infamous lady makes a lovely model. Love her!

p.s. that comment was from me, your buddy in Fresno, Cali! :P But I think you already knew that. Dang, I need to stop signing into my gmail account and confusing everyone with these comments! But maybe I'm not that confusing? Anyway!

p.p.s. hahaha moreeee comments from me!

I love how slouchy that beret is! It really looks great on you. I recently bought a beret from Target ... but I returned it last night because I just couldn't work it. Maybe if I had longer hair? haha, reminds me of you and your rules with red lipstick and short vs long hair!

I returned the beret and exchanged it for a mini cloche hat. Ok, enough commenting! bye! :)

ok, fine one more.
It's not a mini cloche hat. It's a demi cloche hat.
