Beret made in a jaunt 閒作帽子

Mogi, "Mum made this beret with inspiration from a friend.  How she come up the idea?"
 Starting my leisure and relaxing life 2013, last week I'd a jaunt to my brother's holiday house in the nearby coastal city.   
2013開始我的悠閒日子, 日前在哥哥鄰近城市的渡假屋遊山玩水, 踏單車, 還有做針織...... 實驗我的羊毛帽子創作.....
We went up the hill for the panoramic view.......
Down to the sea for a strolling.....

Cycling in the beautiful field....
 A lazy afternoon for knitting..... 

 I'm far behind doing knitting.  Since Melinda taught me last month in the US, I told myself I must make something with mixed medium -  wool felt & knitting. 
Here it is....
 I knitted the simple "round net" enclosed the resist, put the merino wool and silk scraps on the top with spikes in the middle.  Round enclosed the rim with merino wool as well.  Done the rubbing and felting as usual. 
 The yarn is not wool though also felted.  To secure it I machine sewed it freely.
 Finished look with nuno felt surface
Making a whole wool felt beret is faster than knit & felt.  Yet I wanted to have a go.  Thought this is unique with mixed medium.   
 How it looks on my girl?
 It speaks itself.....
How it looks on Mogi?  Mogi said "it's good !"
Thank you Melinda, you inspired me knitting !
