Walk Along.



I started this already in July but after the birth of the baby I haven't had as much time to knit as I used to so I only finished it late last night. I'm really happy how it looks (even Magnus commented that it looked really good, and he doesn't usually pay that much attention to what I'm wearing). I especially love that light shade of gray and the fake seams that go down along the sides.



I followed the pattern as it was except for the contrasting parts where I added a "rabbit face lace" pattern. I saw tempolinse had done so on her pullover and thought it gave the otherwise quite plain garment just the little bit of extra it needed in my opinion. 


Yarn: Garnstudio Drops Baby Alpaca Silk
shades #8108 light pearl gray & #100 off white
Needles: 3.0 mm

  2. Gorgeous! I love that mod, and the longer sleeves. It's got a great cozy-but-polished vibe.

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…
