How was the beret? I might have a go myself tonight.
It was great! Dead easy to knit and it was so fast with the big needles. It only took me one evening.
I'm so in love with that magazine. I made the 'scarlet' bolero at the weekend and i've used the chunky needles to make about 5 scarves so far.
I really like it too - I'm making the fur shrug thing with ribbons for a wedding I'm off to in February. Completely fell in love with it when I saw it!
