Yeah I really need to sort myself out because we all know I've had time for sewing and knitting.....
Anyway! This beret mainly came about because I'm getting thoroughly sick of my old hand knit hat [If you read that blog please forgive my hideous spelling errors! if I were a proper blogger I'd go and fix all the spelling errors in my old posts but LOL! I'd rather be sewing!]
Anyway the wool for this was a Aran that I got from a shop in Hanley market. In the shop I thought it was Raspberry which had me getting my prince on and singing raspberry beret. And then I got it home and its more of a purple pink rather than Raspberry.
The pattern was from a copy of a Lets knit bookazine, which I had off Rikkis Nan and I'm pretty sure she had it off Aunty Mary. Its a pretty simple pattern even though its lace work and I actually reached the point where I memorised the pattern!
And yeah its a hat I just sat and followed the pattern like a good little egg [I find it highly amusing that when I sew I throw caution to the wind and do it my way but that when I knit I follow the pattern to the letter!!!!]
In other news,
I'm exhausted I'm not quite sure what happened but I'm so tired its unreal!
I'm on season four of lost and I'm hooked its just sooo freaking bizarre! I am however on a time limit to finish watching it because we are switching from sky to virgin in January!
And that it really!
