Ooh la la...

Elle est fini :o) My little beret has finally made it over the finishing line. The peloton have long since disbanded so I can't claim any colour jersey for this but I loved being part of the knitalong so I'm really just pleased I wasn't months behind.
Pattern: Verity
Yarn: South West Trading Company Karaoke - Mermaid; just under two balls
Needles: 4.5mm dpns and 40cm circular
Started: 1 July 2008
Finished: 6 August 2008
What's that - you want to see a modelled shot? Well only on one condition - you have to give me your honest opinion as to whether I can rock this hat or not. I am not convinced and the 1TB is being no help - when I say I think it suits me he agrees, when I say I think it doesn't - well yep he agrees! So let's have a vote on it - my head will be adorned by Verity or not depending on the results of the poll [ETA - this is now a blogger poll at the top of my sidebar - happy voting], and don't worry if you think I look a fool - there are a couple of my friends I was planning on making this for anyway who I'm sure it will suit. So whichever direction the poll swings this is a winner for me - my winter hat done or a Christmas present stashed away.

Apologies to Marianne and thanks for being the test voter! I've changed the poll to one in my sidebar now which should be easier and not send you off anywhere else.
