beanie time.

i'm in detox mode from sewing, knitting & baking. i've lost interest in vogue 8425 (again), although i will probably try to get the lining in over the weekend. i also have to do a cookie test, because i'm bringing cookies down to socal for thanksgiving.

what i need right now is some speedy gratification. i love the burberry prorsum beanies (& when i pulled this photo i was reminded of how much i loved the whole collection)--

Burberry Prorsum
Fall 08

--so last night, i grabbed a partly-used skein of dark brown wool from my stash & cast on. i'm using a basic beanie pattern, elongating it like the burberry beanies & with a wide rib on bottom edge & just 1 cable up the middle.
