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...

  2. Your WIPs are all so beautiful! I love the yarn you're using for the Wheaten scarf, its extraordinary. and I love the mitts! They do indeed look like clouds.

    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 :)

  3. Beautiful WIPs! I adore the yarns you are using for your Wheaton.

    1. Thank you! I also really love the combination of the yarns :)

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…
