Shibui Knits FW15 Collection.

While waiting for the new Brooklyn Tweed Fall 2015 collection to come out next week I have fallen in love with the new Shibui Knits collection. I have only one word to describe it: perfection. BT collections usually get all the hype, but this one outshines them in my opinion!

I can't remember another collection that was so well put together and all the pieces complement one another perfectly. The collection is also very classic and minimalistic but the pieces all have some kind of twist to keep them interesting. The patterns are all designed by Shellie Anderson. Out of the 10 pieces in the collection 8 made it straight to my (already too long) Ravelry queue.

I also love the styling of the photos and the colours they have chosen for the pieces. The rusty brown yarn is especially to die for!

My absolute favourite and the one that caught my eye and led me to the rest of the collection was the Emboss coat. I'm so in love with it and plan to knit one for myself as soon as I get my other WIPs off my needles.

Other favourites were the Volute shrug (although I would make mine out of a bit heavier yarn to make it more wearable during winter) and the timeless Cornice sweater.

Another sweater favourites include the Inscribe with its low v-neck and asymmetrical textured front and the Trace with it's simple ribbing details.

And lastly, check out these accessories!

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…
