new pattern: thisbe

It took a bit longer than I expected, but Thisbe is now up for sale on Ravelry! 

Thisbe was a Christmas present for my sister, who had  requested a red slouchy beret. It took me four attempts to get a hat I was happy with, but after a few false starts, I am quite happy with the resulting hat, which uses a twisted rib brim and a sinuous vine-like lace pattern. Several of my test knitters worked this beret in bulkier and lighter yarns (adding or decreasing pattern repeats) and they came out beautifully as well, so I think that this pattern can handle a lot of customizing to suit whatever yarn you have floating around :-) which is my favorite kind of project. 

buy now for $5 - with an extra 25% off during its first week, through January 9th!
