KNITTED CUTE BERET FOR MUM TODAY!!!



Hello ladies...well i have been wanting to knit my mum a beret for Mother's Day next sunday as my MUM just LOVES her fashion..shoes/hats/clothes..

AT nearly 88 yrs old..SHE IS A real fashion ICON...guru...I wont go there!

I just recently bought her two fabulous crochet BIG OVER THE TOP berets from an ETSY seller from the USA... which she ADORED...& wants me to buy MORE in different colours...!!!

ANYWAY WHILST sorting through "stuff" to sell in my ebay room I found a pattern I had bought last year from SPOTLIGHT..
it was a package with 4 x skeins of wool with a pattern sheet to knit a beret/scarf/bag/dog coat...whichever tickled your fancy....
MMMM!! loved the BERET pattern as the wool is thick...needles are a big size 10!!

SO whilst sitting at my computer listing some bits & bobs on ebay today I knitted this beret for mum.
I have just sewn it up...adorned it with flowers I had knitted last year re little bags I was knitting...(they are still unfinished!!)...
& VOILA...
I am quite happy with the outcome...& myself in THAT..
I actually finished knitting it..
sewed it up....
embellished it..
& took photos...

(took one of me looking totally stupid...BUT very hard to photograph yourself in a mirror...SO THAT IS MY EXCUSE....just showing it to highlight the Hat...NOT the wearer )...!! being a bit SILLY!! with the tongue poking out!!

Well done Andrea. Your mum is sure to love it. I can't beleive you made it so quickly. I hate knitting so I'd still be there next mother's day trying to finish it.
