FO - full o piratey goodness

G'day all!

This is the last FO for the moment unless I get a bee in my bonnet about finishing things I haven't actually started (like the fingerless mitts to go with today's FO).

As I was knitting it, I thought it looked like (stripy) stained glass, but someone else saw it as being piratey. So ahhhhrrrr, me hearties, I give you the pirate beret

(without pirate ahhhhrrr expression cos y'know it ain't that attractive and I have some meagre standards about my appearance.)

I think it looks a lot better on that off - it looks like a funny little bag thing. It wouldn't sit flat.
