.Favorite knits.

I first thought I would just post a couple of photos of me from the past days, but then I realised I'm wearing a few of my favourite knits in all of them. So I decided to show you the knits I've worn the most. I already mentioned earlier that my favourite socks are definitely my Linesx3 and Phloem socks, so this time I will show more of hats and pullovers. The photo above is not the best quality, but I'm wearing my Bough cap in it. It's such a cute hat and I love wearing it, it makes me happy every time.

This is what I'm wearing today. The pullover is from my pre-Ravelry-time and something I made up as I knit. The socks are my Rumpelstiltskin socks

Another pullover that has been in frequent use is my Papillon. I knit it with cotton yarn so I love the smoothness of it against my skin. The colour is also wonderfully peaceful.

My favourite pullover for lounging around the house is definitely my Skagen. It just so amazingly soft and warm. The colour of it is also one of my favourites all time.

And to mention one more of my favourites: the Bray cap. This is the one I have worn the most this winter.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Theo's New Knitwear.

All of Theo's hats became suddenly too small for him. And also too hot now that spring has arrived. I had been eyeing the Kyushu hat pattern by Kuroki Knitting for a while and decided to knit it now that I had the chance. I love knitting baby hats because they are really fast to knit but at the same time as versatile as grown-up hats. This hat had a really unique eyelet sic sac pattern which was fun to knit. 
Theo was diagnosed with allergy to eggs, that's why his cheeks are looking so bad at the moment. But now we know and can eliminate all things containing eggs from his diet!
This was my first time knitting with Sandnes Garn Mini Alpaca, but certainly not the last one. Unlike many other alpaca yarns it was not at all itchy which is important for baby knits. The light blue color is also really cute in my opinion. 

I have also finished the bunny yoke pullover I started knitting during the Easter holidays. The pattern is Sweet William by Ann Kingstone and it is one of the cute…
