New Pattern--Easy, No Frills, Slouchy Beret

I have always had trouble knitting hats.  I have at least 3 hats sitting around my house that I knitted with very nice yarn and they came out way too small.  Hence, they are awaiting a froggy death.  This hat I designed is knit very loosely on larger needles than one would normally use for worsted weight yarn.  The result is a nicely draped, slouchy hat that will not only stay on, but will also stretch a lot if you are a tight knitter and have a big head (like me).  Please excuse the camera phone pictures. I did some crappy saturation/contrast adjustments so you could see the detail better.  Pattern is available for $2.00 here:

New Pattern--Cabled Lampshade Cover

I whipped this baby up in an afternoon.  It was more fun than folding the laundry, but the laundry is still not folded.  My lamp looks awesome, though!  This pattern is for sale for $4.00.
