A Shawl... And A Matching Cat.

"What do you mean by 'it's yours'?"

Luna stole my shawl.

Yesterday I was taking a photo of my Vector shawl for Ravelry to show how much progress I've made when Luna decided that the shawl would much better serve as a blanket for her.

She seems to think that everything I knit is especially made for her and she can get away with anything by just looking cute. I hate to admit how often it actually works.

She looked so happy that I just let her have it for a while. And she really matches the colors perfectly, I wonder where I got the inspiration...?


  1. So adorable!!! We have different relationships with my cat, she knows very well - the access to my knits is strictly prohibited :)

    1. The cats know they shouldn't touch my yarns and the other two know to steer away from my knitting altogether, but Luna hasn't learned that yet :) Luckily she just sleeps on the things I knit so she doesn't really do any harm except for some occasional cat hair... ;)

  2. haha, Luna know that the shawl matches her fur, she looks so happy on it!

    1. Yeah, doesn't she? I just couldn't tell her to go away because she was seemed to be enjoying herself so much + she looked too cute :)

  3. She coordinates very attractively with the shawl. Very pretty pussy cat.
    I've just ordered a gradient kit in a colour way called scotch from Black Trillium in Oregon and the colours are a bit similar. I can't wait to get it.

    1. This was a really nice shawl to knit and I'm really happy how it turned out. I've been wearing mine a lot. Hope you have a great time knitting (and wearing) yours!

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
