There Is Something I Haven't Told You...

...and if you have been following on Ravelry what I have been knitting lately, you might already guess what I'm about to say. I'm over-the-moon happy to announce that we are expecting our first baby in the early days of next August! 


I've been waiting to tell you this whole time and have felt a bit (let's just be honest and not sugar-coat it) shitty keeping it from you and making excuses why I have been updating less than usual and complaining about being tired. I hope you all understand now why things have been a bit more quiet around here than usual.

We were at the week 12 ultrasound scan two weeks ago and seeing the little baby kicking his feet and waving his hands was one of the most amazing feelings in my life so far. It also made the whole pregnancy more real for me: earlier I've just had to believe everything was going well and trust that me being so extremely tired and feeling queasy and kind of sea sick were signs of everything going well, now I could see the baby with my own eyes.

We were also told that we are probably having a little baby boy but it's not 100% certain until the next ultra in the end of March.

So now you know what's going on in my life. And I promise this won't turn into a baby blog ;)

  4. Onnea, ihania uutisia! Toivottavasti kaikki menee hyvin.

    Ei tosiaan ihan kannata siihen ensimmäiseen ultraan vielä luottaa. Meillekin piti aluksi tulla vielä kolmas poika, mutta lopulta isoveljet saivatkin pitkätukkaisen pikkusiskon.

    1. Kiitos! Tähän asti ainakin kaikki on ollut hyvin ja yritän vaan olla antautumatta turhalle stressaamiselle, se vaan kuluttaa eikä vie eteenpäin. On tämä aika kyllä jännää :)

    1. Thank you! I just made a pair of baby socks that took only a couple of hours to knit, so I was joking to my husband that it's almost faster to knit new socks for the little one than do the whole laundry thing. ;-)

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! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
