I started knitting this last night & its on my head tonight
The pattern had clear instructions both in written format & chart.I was pleased with the sizing & knowing I wear a size 58 cm at work I plumped for the medium.I used Debbie Bliss Fez in a shocking pink that was a Christmas present along with the handmade ceramic button that came from The Wool Bar in Worthing.I used slightly larger needles as I only had a 5mm cicular needle& the pattern stated to use a 4.5 mm.I must be a tight knitter.
The pictures show the beret just a few minutes after sewing it up so it isn't blocked yet.It may look better if I block it.

They were then stuffed using polyfil stuffing from a cheap pillow (far cheaper than using toy stuffing) .I trimmed them using buttons,beads ,ribbon & braid& re strung them together using beads & more bells.
Here is the finished result.I am pretty pleased with them.You will have to excuse the photos.I seem to get blurry images at the moment.
I have just had huge arguments with the manager of the local supermarket about the wrong packaging of the chicken breast fillets.They had them priced at £6.98 reduced to £3.49.......half price, per kilo.The packet was a 500g packet & was priced at £3.49......not quite right eh?!!!!When challenged over this ,the staff eventually agreed with me but the manager did not.They had even sold a pack to another customer at the reduced price of 2x500g packs for £3.49 as the butcher of the store had agreed with him about the pricing.The manager could not see this.It is an error on the packaging I agree ,but they are legally bound to uphold what they are saying on the label& why have they sold it to the other customer at a reduced price & he even told the manager this I was speaking to & yet he would still not agree.I even found a pack that had different labelling on to prove a point.
The manager kept me waiting for 20 minutes while he argued with his staff who had agreed with me & then had the cheek to ask me if we had seen his staff when he knew we hadn't as he had just left them & I watched him walk towards us.
To be honest I didn't even want the chicken breasts,they were for my elderly mother.She was made to wait as well & not so much as an apology from the manager.
I am not sure whether to contact Trading Standards over this as can I be bothered.......?
The supermarket giants seem to make as much profit as they possibly can & its always us little people who pay.
Have you had a similar experience?
Just watch your labels!!!
