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!


  1. Beautiful knitting and colorwork!

  2. he looks so sweet in his eole cardigan! Love those little anchor pants, too.

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…
