In Paris

The Eiffel Tower was a glance away.... Moe took pictures. 

Now with buttons

Eight blood red buttons :) I found them here.

Sixty Cables Beret

So soft, fluffy and warm. And it was fun to knit too. I've had the yarn for a long time, you know, saving it for the perfect project. It peels a little more than I want it to, but not enough for me to dislike it.

Sublime Angora Merino: 80% merino and 20% angora. Needles 3.5 mm.

Dandelion Beret

A beret for my mother - tadaa! I went over a massive amount of patterns to find the perfect hat for her. It took quite some time, because ususally my mother looks fairly silly wearing a hat. Any hat that is. I made two different hats just to give her more than one option. Here is the one she chose.


The two first pictures are more true to the real colour of the beret. Yarn: Cumba by GGH - a blend of 42% wool, 30% acrylic and 28% alpaca.

Rasmilla's Linnea

Just because. I made this cardigan 'Linnea' with a 100% merino yarn called Colorado. The colour is so vibrant that my camera freaks out a bit. In fact, it isn't really THAT orange/raspberry red. Moe and I went to Paris a few weeks ago, and I bought two sets of orange-ish buttons for 'Linnea'. But at the time I didn't realize I would need 8 instead of only 6 buttons. So now I have to go look for buttons again. Oh sigh!

Linnea designed by Rasmilla, size: 5-6 years, yarn: Colorado, needles: 4.5 and 5.0 mm.
