A few yards

Well, the Ishbel Beret hat is done, and here’s what I had left after finishing it:

Yeah, only a few yards left of the 130 yards for the beret. I did do one thing to help stretch the yarn. I knit the inside of the hem in another yarn (Opal sock yarn in this case):

Now, I only did one full repeat of the lace pattern, but then realized as I knit the top of the hat I had enough yarn, so I added in 4 more rows total to give the hat a bit of slouch. All in all, the calibration between the pattern and yarn came out about as close as I like to cut it!
