.Bored Already.

Whoa, way to lose your interest in knitting something after only 4 rows! I'm knitting the Pippi scarf by Kirsten Kapur, and the instructions tell you to start the scarf by knitting the lace edging. There are instructions for 4 rows of lace and then the next piece of instruction they give you is "knit the last 4 rows for 143 more times". And I'm like what! Nice way to kill off my enthusiasm about a new knitting project! 

Like a trooper I continued knitting, because I really really like the scarf, but for some weird reason I have a constant need of counting my pattern repeats after every completed 4 rows, even though I know that last time I counted I had 14 repeats, so there's no way I could be done with all 144 already. The edging is not even monotonous TV-time knitting, because you really have to keep track of all the yo's and k2togs, so it remains to be seen how long I'm working on this edging, let alone the whole scarf...

I just hope the rest of the scarf is something more varying and intriguing...

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…
