Monsieur Paddy

He's back. Apparently, Paddy made a whirlwind trip to gai Paris, and now he's full of all sorts of high-falutin' notions . . . like sitting outside with croissants and café au lait while wearing this . . .

O, Monsieur Paddy, comme tu es beau!!

Once again, we can't take credit for a great design. This little beret is Mary C. Gildersleeve's  Swirly, Twirly Tam.  Or, at least, a version of it. The pattern offers sizes for newborn to adult. For Paddy-sized, we had to improvise a bit. Paddy's is 6 inches in diameter. (You'll remember that Paddy is Anita Wilschuit's Monkey Jacobus.)

We were so anxious to see how it finished, that we forgot to photograph the beret before we blocked it. Fortunately, we have these photos:

Straight off the needles, unblocked . . .

. . . and blocking on a tea cup saucer, while undergoing inspection.

Notice it even has that little stem at the top. So cute!
