The little Berry Beanie started as an idea, a celebration of a baby to come.
It was to be for a girl, it was to be a pretty thing, with a beautiful pattern and deep berry colour.
That it was to be a Berry Beanie was incidental and perfect, as this is their family name.
This first yarn choice of Imagine by I Love Yarn didn't work, the colours weren't right.
Then, a great red was found amongst the beauty of Bambi by Vinnis Colours.

The texture of the yarn did't suit the pattern, so a basic beanie pattern was used, and it worked out nice, with a simple scalloped edge.
But then, one day in April, with exactly one scallop to go - the baby was to be no more.
The little beanie is waiting now, waiting for that last scallop to be made, the end to be worked away, and will then go on to another baby, a baby who might desperately need something as simple as a beanie, for whom this might be their only pretty little thing.
