All things turquoise

Well, I don't mind turquoise at all really, but of course I prefer black, lol. It just so happens that the recipients of these gifts wanted that colour. The 1st item is a pair of socks (my design) that I did on my fine bed knitting machine using a tuck stitch.
Next, this beret pattern is from "Interweave Knits: Winter 2006, pg.134". Done in the round on my new Knit Picks Options, which, by the way, I am in total love with & will now knit everything on! I just used larger needles because I was knitting with the same sock yarn as the 1st project. Samantha also wants socks to match like the ones above too.
Here is Sam sporting her new beret. Anyway, that's it for now. If you're interested, I've written a cheesy poem about my love for making socks on the blog. http://thecreativecastle-boop.blogspot.com/ Thx. for looking :O)

Sam is adorable in that beret! I am jealous--I love berets but can not pull them off.
