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!


  1. What a beautiful stitch pattern!

  2. look at that little one, such a sweetie!! It's amazing how quick they grow at that newborn stage, and he looks awesome in his blue sweater!

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!

Theo's New Knitwear.

All of Theo's hats became suddenly too small for him. And also too hot now that spring has arrived. I had been eyeing the Kyushu hat pattern by Kuroki Knitting for a while and decided to knit it now that I had the chance. I love knitting baby hats because they are really fast to knit but at the same time as versatile as grown-up hats. This hat had a really unique eyelet sic sac pattern which was fun to knit. 
Theo was diagnosed with allergy to eggs, that's why his cheeks are looking so bad at the moment. But now we know and can eliminate all things containing eggs from his diet!
This was my first time knitting with Sandnes Garn Mini Alpaca, but certainly not the last one. Unlike many other alpaca yarns it was not at all itchy which is important for baby knits. The light blue color is also really cute in my opinion. 

I have also finished the bunny yoke pullover I started knitting during the Easter holidays. The pattern is Sweet William by Ann Kingstone and it is one of the cute…
