The blue knitted beret is a purchase from blogger Oranges and Apples. She does have her own Etsy shop but I negotiated directly with the supplier! My poor head needs a hat on my bicycle and when those Siberian winds hit the South East and London. i was taken with the stiching and the navy colour of the beret. I can sew but I'm no knitter and I can appreciate such a skill. Truly, my beret is beret beret nice!
But the story doesn't end with the beret purchase. The clever Franca, Ms. Oranges and Apples came up with a creative concept that tickled me pink... a knitted coffee cup warmer. Beautifully crafted it will adorn my daily coffee cup purchase from Pret. I love Pret for coffee as they use organic milk and it comes from a dairy in Aberystwyth, West Wales. I have preferences for such things! Franca was very kind because she gave me a freebie of a plain knit one in a mustard colour.
