Here Comes the Sun

Pattern: "Star Crossed Slouchy Beret," by Natalie Larson, available free on Ravelry
Yarn: Malabrigo Merino Worsted (Sunset)
Needles: US11 circular and US10 dpns (worked in the round)

Plus: I want to make love to this hat. The yarn, the pattern, the color....well, this comes to mind.
Delta: It does not belong to me. Cry.

Believe it or not, the gorgeous creature on the left is my sister, 22 years old today. There is no one kinder, more generous, or more beautiful--inside and out--than this child. Don't let the sexy smirk and high-fashion look intimidate you; behind those gentle blue eyes dwells a soul as pure and honest as one may ever imagine. I am honored to know her and awed by her ferocious drive to change the world for the better. It blows my mind that she is quite suddenly a woman. This January she will marry an amazing man, and, shortly thereafter, graduate from Abilene Christian University with a degree in communications. One of her many dreams for the future includes founding a non-profit organization to help families with autistic children cope with the challenges and obstacles of raising a special needs child. How cool is that? The hat above was knit lovingly for her. She rocks the slouchy-hat-look better than most. I love you, Becca-boo!
