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!

(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…
