I’ve been a little quiet because I’ve been busy finishing my beret.
Here I am wearing it.
Here it is showing how it looks inside on the right.
I must admit that it has turned out well and I’m very happy. It started out as a doll sized cap, just to see if it could be done and I just kept adding to it until I had a full sized beret that fits me perfectly. I think I will probably wear it in the depth of Winter, but I still feel a beret like this is not very flattering for someone over 60. Young women look good in them, but not people my age. My mother had a Kangol hat in this style and she wore it a lot, I wonder who remembers those? I know she would have been very pleased with it.
I think I will have another go and make one in another colour. DH doesn’t like this colour!
Addition to post. How strange, I just came across this now a Kangol news flash. This bit of news came out August 23rd 2010. So Kangol is still alive and moving with the times.
