Hello, September!


It's the beginning of September and summer is now officially over. The weather has taken a turn for colder which feels bittersweet: it feels nice to have cooler evenings after the hot August, but at the same time it's sad to see the summer fading away. The summer is over before it really even began. June and July were unusually cold and due to my pregnancy we mostly stayed at home and didn't do anything special. And even though we had amazing sunny days during August, after the arrival of the baby the time has just flown by and the days have blended into one another.

The baby has grown a lot, I can't even seem to keep up how fast he is gaining length, weight and strength. This little blue cabled cardigan was huge on him when we took him home from the hospital but it seems to fit him perfectly now. Just in time for September and sweater weather!

P.S. You can find my translation of the baby cardigan pattern over here!

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…
