SELUNE.




Thank God for KALs! (That is Knit Alongs, in case you were wondering.) Otherwise this beauty would never have seen the light of day. I don't know why I had totally snubbed this pattern and never even considered knitting it, because it is actually absolutely beautiful and also a really fun pattern to knit.



Me knitting the scarf in Berlin.


When Brooklyn Tweed Lace KAL started in July I was eager to take part but lace shawls aren't really my thing even though I like knitting them. I was desperately trying to look for the perfect pattern when the Selune scarf by Julie Hoover popped on my Ravelry search. Love at first sight. I knew I wanted to make a thicker scarf though, something to get me through winter and decided to change the suggested lace weight yarn for a woolen fingering weight. I chose Tukuwool Fingering in shade Uupo, since I had it already in my stash. 


Trying to take photos when it's really windy isn't always that easy! Also pictured, my Flet pullover.


I'm so in love with my new scarf, and even though I first had some doubts about the color (it's a lot brighter than I usually work with or wear) it actually compliments almost every basic color really nicely, as well as blushy pink, burgundy and navy. So despite being unlike the other items of my wardrobe, it ended up working really nicely with my excisting clothes. That's why I decided it would be part of my three-piece Summer of basics -wardrobe. (Yay, for another make along for pushing my boundaries and getting me outside my comfort zone!)



The photos on this post were taken in Kylmäpihlaja lighthouse hotel on an island near Rauma (Finland), where my husband and I spent 2 days on the last weekend of August. It was pretty windy as you can tell, but the scenery was unbelievable and the food was made with local produce.

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
