I Haven't Had Time To Knit...

I haven't knitted a stitch for a week now, and here's the reson:

Our little baby boy was finally born last Friday at 3:57 AM weighting 3825 g and measuring 51 cm in length. He's the cutest and the most adorable little guy we have ever seen and we are already completely in love with him. 

We are all doing fine over here, although we are quite exhausted after everything that has happened. The labour was quite hard on me with the contractions starting on Tuesday night. The whole ordeal took almost exactly 4 days. We got home from the hospital yesterday in the afternoon and are now trying to get used to the newest member of our little family and the routines of our new life.

I just wanted to let you know that we are the happiest and luckiest new parents of a beautiful baby boy. I'll try to write more as soon as possible.

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!

Cloud Mittens - the Pattern part 1.

This is so long overdue, but I have now finally managed to write down the pattern for the Cloud mittens. Here it is, my Christmas present to all you guys! Enjoy!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
