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! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
