even more babyknits

I know, AGAIN babyknits! Before I got pregnant I wasn’t interested in this topic at all and why should I have been? Even in the first weeks and months of my pregnancy I didn’t give a thought about it. It took me even more than 20 weeks to buy the first thing for this tiny baby inside me. Until then everything seemed unreal and far away. Right now I am entering the third trimester and I am far from completing this baby wardrobe. But as I am getting slowly but steady closer to due date I get more and more involved in this topic. I think this is a natural instinct of a mother to be.


Iðunn Cardigan

Luckily I managed to finish this beautiful Lopi Cardigan before it gets too warm to wear it! It is still February and the temperatures are around freezing point. Iðunn is another one from my countless projects I started but didn’t manage to finish in 2017. In fact I started the idunn Cardigan back in September 2017 as a project for my two-week vacation in the Bavarian Alps. Thanks to the thick appealing Lett Lopi yarn I made quick progress and nearly finished it a month later. Due to some minor issues that disrupted my workflow I stopped working in the project. Yes, you may have guessed it but the whole steeking thing  wasn’t that easy for me.


Lucia Hoodie


So I hope this year will be a year of finishing unfinished objects. As I mentioned in my last post there are several projects on hold which I plan to complete little by little this year. For sure I will cast on new projects anyway 🙂 My first finished project in 2018 is this beautiful hooded Cardigan called Lucia by Carrie Bostick Hoge. I started it back in October 2017 when I was in Denmark with my mother. It seemed like a perfect no fuss, easy to knit cardigan wich has the potential to become a favorite piece of clothing.

As I wanted a tweedy look I chose Lana Grossa Ascot.


driftwood sweater by brooklyn tweed

So I finished my fourth sweater in a row (okay the last one was a cardigan) and I love it! Back in September with my mind already heading towards cold winter I wanted to knit a simple and cozy sweater. Again I found a wonderful pattern in one of the brooklyn tweed collections. This pattern is called “driftwood” designed by julie hoover an can be found in the fall collection 2012 by Brooklyn Tweed. This piece had been on my want-to-knit-list for a long time.

I chose my favorite yarn by Drops alpaca in this wonderful light and icy blue (#6205). I already have knitted many sweaters/cardigans/shawls with it.
