It's the cutest thing! (The hat! Not the model! The model is my office fan at work.)

After finishing Tj's shawl Monday evening, I started on the beret I wanted to make to go with the shawl. So I could see the yarn threads through the yarn fuzz, I used a hook larger than the one intended by the pattern (an N instead of a J) and needed to skip lots of increasing rows and guess at where to begin decreasing. I think Tj's head is big - like my head! - so since the hat fits me snuggly, it should fit her! If not, I'll be able to adjust it.
