No. 2 (Ooh la la)

Here is project no. 2.
Tres chic, n'est-ce pas? Last week was peppered with petit pieces of France - croissants from Chez Julien up the hill, photos from our trip to Provence last year, Bonne Maman jam, the beautiful beret by Love those cupcakes and reading about this fashionable quest. All signs were pointing to the Moss Stitch Beret by Debbie Bliss. It was really easy to do - I used Rowan All Seasons again and knitted it yesterday afternoon/evening.

I do look utterly ridiculous in it. Mr M was rendered speechless. So it will be wending its way, courtesy of Royal Mail, to my little sister who could make a saucepan lid look chic and is about to sit her January finals - French and English, naturally.


  1. I adore berets but also look completely idiotic wearing them too, such a shame. Yours looks tres elegant, I'm sure it'll be appreciated.
    Loving your blog by the way, I'm new here after seeing you pop into the Attic, I like it here, will stay a snoop a while!

  2. how bizarre, I found you after following your comment from Lucy's blog and she's just beaten me to it on a comment too!! anyway just wanted to say your blog looks great, love the idea of the icing for the chocolate cake and I can so relate to your profile - unfinished projects but finished bottle of wine - oh so true.

  3. i found you from Lucy too -- have just had a look through all your posts - you have a lovely blog and I'm going to add you to my list - hope thats ok - love the beret too

  4. The beret is fab. It's a shame you didn't feel comfortable wearing it (I can empathise) but how lucky is your sister? I think I'll join in the quest you provided the link to. I can do black very well. Stripes? Not so much.

  5. Hello! Thank you so much for all of your lovely comments and for adding me to your lists. Happy snooping! ; )

    Love those cupcakes - I am sticking with dark colours - black, grey and navy. No stripes in sight!!
