Just finished this last night for DD. Made from double strands of Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky, in grey. The pattern is the "Star Crossed Slouchy Beret" : http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret
I'm reasonably happy with the way it turned out. For the ribbed band I used one strand of worsted wool along with one strand of the alpaca, but next time would knit in some elastic. I'm going to either go back and sew in some elastic, or unknit the band, and knit it back *down* with a thin strand of elastic. But, for now, DD likes it well enough. It traveled to Seattle for a day in town - to see the Michelangelo exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum, to Pike Place Market, the Levi's store, and Magic Mouse.

These are great! I need to make some for Pilates!
"Image from pattern itself, grabbed from Kpixie, one of my favorite pattern sites - kpixie.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=59_145&prod...
I bought it at Knit & Purl in Portland, tho - and paid a dollar more for it. Beautiful store but that's what I get for shopping downtown. Sadly, local yarn shops are getting more and more posh here - i'll be doing nothing but shopping on the internet before long!"
Another site for knitting patterns that has yoga/Pilates socks:

"This is a set of pink and silver colored stitch markers. All six are candy pink with silver stardust beads.
The entire ring is handmade and the ends are filed. I tested the markers with yarn to make sure they didn't snag. The loop fits up to a size 10 1/2 needle."
