For a brief bit there, I wished for some kind of ball or gala to attend, because without one this will quickly be scrunched up and worn as a scarf. It will be a great scarf, though.

Et voila, a lovely and warm beret. From Knitty, the Brambles Beret in River Twist from Mountain Colors in the Whitewater River colorway. Used .77 skeins, with enough left over for some coordinating scarf or mittens. Maybe they'll appear when I come to after finishing Icarus...
