WIP Wednesday pt. 2.

I haven't had much time to knit this past week. We were away for the weekend to visit friends and family and the baby got a bit of a cold during that trip. He's had a runny nose and that's why he's been fussy and sleeping somewhat restlessly. I'm also still waiting for my yarn order so every project that I'm out of yarn of is still on hold. Except the Dessine-moi un mouton sweater: I managed to pop in the yarn store to get the one missing skein last Saturday before we took off for the weekend. Magnus and the baby were waiting in the car so I didn't have to worry about the whole stroller-vs.-steps-issue.

My Dessine-moi Un Mouton sweater is only missing the second sleeve, so it's soon ready!

So the only things that have progressed this week are my Relax pullover (I think it's name comes from the relaxed fit but I also find the long rows of Stockinette stitch quite meditative) and the aforementioned Dessine-moi.

The weather keeps getting colder so the baby gets to wear more of the little cardigans that I have knitted for him, although most of them are still way too big for him. Here's him wearing his blue Eole cardigan, which is probably the one he has used the most so far.



I hope you all have a wonderful day! Here the sun is shining so we are going for a little walk to get some fresh air!

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
