Now On Needles - December.


My Hawser sweater.



My Wheaten scarf.


And lastly. I'm knitting a second pair of my Cloud mittens. Here they are in their unblocked form looking less than glorious.... I've been trying to write down the patter for these mittens for months now, but I came to the conclusion that I'm that much of a visual person that I need to actually see what I'm doing to be able to write it down (I just can't picture it in my mind). I will publish the pattern as soon as I finish these mittens.

    1. Oh me neither ;) I'm so in love with all the designs in the BT Fall 14 collection, I would like to knit everything from it. I'm a sucker for Fisherman inspired knits and cables...

    1. The yarn for the Wheaten is actually two different yarns mixed together: salmon pink sock yarn and fluffy brown Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk, but they do look good together :)

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…
