Honey Cap Pattern Soon Available.


Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the chilly mornings and clear evenings, but at the same time I enjoy the last warm rays of sunshine during the days. I love wearing scarfs, hats and thick woolen jumpers, but it also feels sad to pack away all the summer clothes. Autumn is bittersweet, and while I love the weather and the colors of the nature, it also marks the shift from easy summer days to a long and dark winter time.

Today was the first time it felt like autumn. It was really foggy in the morning when I left for work and I needed to search for a hat for the first time after the warm summer. The Honey cap was the first one I found. I finished this hat on the last day of April, but didn't get to use it more than a few times since last May was exceptionally warm. So I was happy to find it and wear it, because I really like it.

After work I started to transcribe my somewhat messy notes which are scribbled over several pieces of wrinkly paper into a more readable and understandable form. I will publish the pattern soon, maybe already tomorrow, so you can also knit your own Honey cap.

And speaking of patterns: I'm also writing down the patterns for the Peacoat sweater and Cumulus Humilis mittens as I promised. They should be available soon as well. At the moment I'm putting all my extra time and effort into Magnus's sweater because I'd really like to get it done, but as soon as it's ready I promise I'll finish the patterns.

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!

Capsule Wardrobe and Knitting. Part 1. My Capsule Wardrobe Knitting Goals.

Before my preganancy I started to read about capsule wardrobes and decided to try and minimize my own pile of clothes. During these past two years I've been trying to define my own stye by really focusing on which clothes I wear over and over again, and which ones are just taking space in my closet.
And the results have been a bit surprising. I have always thought of myself as a colorful person and I thought I loved a bit quirky clothes. But the fact is I don't actually dress the way I imagined I do. I mean, I own(ed) those kind of clothes, but I seldom wear (wore) them. In the reality I kept reaching for the same basics over and over again and feeling the most comfortable wearing them. I do love colors, just not wearing them. It meant I had to redefine my style, my "uniform" and also my knitting queue. I cleaned away everything I didn't really wear and started to buy good quality basics instead. I also cleaned my knitting queue, replacing things that I liked only…
