FLET Pullover.




If you are thinking about knitting only one pullover for the winter season, might I suggest this one?

This pullover was in my queue for a bit over a year before I finally casted on for it. I also had the yarn in my stash waiting pretty much the same time. I don't know why it took me so long to actually start with this one, because it is perfect.

I loved knitting it although I do love wearing it even more. I used Drops Merino Extrafine for this one and it is just perfectly squishy and smooth and I really enjoyed using it, so much actually that I immediately casted on another project with it, this time in black. At the moment I'm knitting the Koto pullover which is also designed by olgajazzy, as is the Flet pullover.

PS. I wish I could try knitting with Woolfolk Får - the yarn that this pullover was originally designed for. I've only heard rave reviews for it...

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…
