Me Made May '15: Days 19-23

May 19th: Office outfit. I love both of my Exeter cardigans, this is the first one I knitted. There's no hiding the baby bump anymore, so I'm not even trying to :)

May 20th: Rainy day, so I wanted to wear something bright. The cute little Petites Boulles hat is just perfect to brighten up a gray day and I love my Van Gogh umbrella that I bought on my trip to Amsterdam: it almost makes me look forward to rainy weather!

May 21st: These are my second pair of Astrid socks. I will show you more of them soon!

May 22nd: Another new project straight off my needles. This is my lovely little Hyperballad cowl!

May 23rd: And today we went shopping for baby stuff and also stopped to for coffee and macarons, because my feet started to ache from all the walking, like I need an excuse ;) Here's my Bough cowl!


  1. Love the red hat! The bobbles are so sweet. You choose the best patterns to knit!

    1. Thanks! I also like the hat with the bobbles, it's amazing how such a little detail can make such a cute result!

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…
