"The Cold Swedish Winter is Right Outside"

I love the cute berets all these Scandanavian fashion bloggers are wearing and was inspired to knit one myself. I used this really wacky Bernat Max yarn and size 11 needles for ultimate texture and the end product came out a little less like I expected. But it was still fun to make and will definitely keep me warm as the days get cooler and cooler.

My signature lately seems to be adding buttons to things. I have a huge stash of random button from old sweaters, craft projects and generous donations. Recently I was going through some more of my mom's things and found a giant container filled with buttons as well. Tons! All colors, shapes, sizes and purposes. Some match, some don't. I am tempted to sew them on everything, and when I get the chance, I will.
