Just a quick post about some baby knitting I’ve finished. Three diaper covers. I’m trying out different patterns to see which one I like the best. So far, this is my favorite.


Soaker pattern by Ms. Crafty Galore (ignore the content warning)

Not only is it really cute, it also looks really functional.


I also like this one.


Villapöpät by Meri Markus.

The pattern was really easy to knit, and no seams! But I have a feeling the waistband will be too tight…


And then there’s this one.


Wool Diaper Cover by Studio Tuumat.

This pattern wasn’t for me. I didn’t like knitting it, I hated the seams, and I don’t like the result. It also turned out much bigger than I planned. There’s nothing wrong with the pattern, it’s me. I’m allergic to everything that involves seaming. Meh!

Nothing more at this time. Prepare yourselves for more soakers in the future. I have a few other patterns I want to try out.

Oh, and the yarn is some unidentified unspun that I bought at the market a year or so ago. It’s gorgeous! I wish I had more…

I've been finishing projects at a fast rate lately, I just haven't had the time to blog about them. Here's one.


Pinwheel Sweater from

Yarn: Evilla Artyarn 8/2, color A-8 and Vuorelma Satakieli, color 964, for the sleeves.

I had a small problem with the sleeves for this project. The Evilla yarn was just enough for the body, and I had to find another yarn that matched the blue color. Not the easiest thing. Luckily, I had a Satakieli color card, and I found a perfect (well almost) match.

Blocking did wonders for the size. I was a bit worried that it would be to small. I mean, I am a little bigger than I used to be, and there's something ball shaped protruding at the front. But it fits perfectly, and it's a great baby belly cardigan.


The circular shape is a bit of a challenge. I like this version where it creates a hood at the back. And you can never go wrong with the Evilla colors.

Back to the baby knitting. After seeing this version of Cisco over at brooklyntweed, I knew what my next project was going to be.


The ears are just too cute for words! I'm really pleased with how this turned out. It's pretty big, and it stretches a lot, so with a little bit of luck, it will fit next winter too. This one is going to a very special, brand new, baby.

The yarn is Sandnes Smart.
