This Is Going To Be Something Awesome!

I'm already super excited about my second Exeter cardigan and I'm not even halfway done with the back. I just can't wait for it to be finished! I'm knitting it with my favorite combination of Garnstudio Drops Alpaca and Baby Merino - I think those two yarns together make the perfect combination of softness and warmth. As you can see I made some modifications with the cable pattern of the original cardigan and changed it to lace and chevron stitch with lots of twisted and traveling stitches.

P.S. I played around with the look of my blog this morning, not sure if it will stay this way or if I will do more changes. I also changed the name from Inspired by Luna to LunaKnit, because I've heard the former makes people think of Luna Lovegood (?). I haven't read the Harry Potter books so I won't take any stance on whether the association is a positive one or not, so I decided to change the name to the simpler and shorter LunaKnit - that's how I feel from time to time: like a lunatic knitter. The address for this blog will still stay the same for now so hopefully you will still find your way here! xoxo <3


  1. I noticed the new header right away, I like the rename (and the tiny triangles). your cardi in progress looks great!

    1. Glad to hear you like them! I'm so happy about the cardi, it's one of those knits that you know immediately you are going to use a lot and often!

  2. This texture is amazing! And I love this color, one of my favorite!

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
