This Is Going To Be Something Awesome!

I'm already super excited about my second Exeter cardigan and I'm not even halfway done with the back. I just can't wait for it to be finished! I'm knitting it with my favorite combination of Garnstudio Drops Alpaca and Baby Merino - I think those two yarns together make the perfect combination of softness and warmth. As you can see I made some modifications with the cable pattern of the original cardigan and changed it to lace and chevron stitch with lots of twisted and traveling stitches.

P.S. I played around with the look of my blog this morning, not sure if it will stay this way or if I will do more changes. I also changed the name from Inspired by Luna to LunaKnit, because I've heard the former makes people think of Luna Lovegood (?). I haven't read the Harry Potter books so I won't take any stance on whether the association is a positive one or not, so I decided to change the name to the simpler and shorter LunaKnit - that's how I feel from time to time: like a lunatic knitter. The address for this blog will still stay the same for now so hopefully you will still find your way here! xoxo <3


  1. I noticed the new header right away, I like the rename (and the tiny triangles). your cardi in progress looks great!

    1. Glad to hear you like them! I'm so happy about the cardi, it's one of those knits that you know immediately you are going to use a lot and often!

  2. This texture is amazing! And I love this color, one of my favorite!

    1. I'm really happy about it as well, can't wait to see how the finished cardi looks like!

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…
