I just made it!

I finished my first cardigan ever! I’m really proud of myself, I just kept on knitting until I was finished and did not give up in between. And it was worth it, I love the result, especially in combination with the super cute little pink elephant buttons I had in stock. I bought them a while ago, without knowing what to use them for, but it was love at first sight so I had to take them and now they turned a cute cardigan into a perfect one!

I would love to go on knitting cute litlle baby stuff, I already found some patterns that I hope I have the time to knit before little Miss P. arrives.

By the way, during this whole knitting-mania, my boyfriend took this Polaroid photo of me, knitting a sleeve of the cardigan and I just love it. It is such a beautiful picture, it will become one of my favorite photos ever!

You can see more of his photos on his Flickr Stream or at his Portfolio, you really should have a look! Probably it is natural to love what the person you love does, but I even liked his photos a lot when we weren’t a couple yet . Ok, I had already fallen in love with him at that point, but what I’m trying to say is that, even if you’re not in love with my boyfriend ( and I really hope nobody else is ), you will love his photos, nevertheless.

And now, let’s go on with the next project…knitted trousers or a baby bonnet? Maybe another cardigan? Whatever I’ll decide for, I will let you know!



  1. Oh my god joe, it’s so lovely! I’m totally in love with the elephant buttons, too! You know about my elephant passion :) I think she’ll just have to wear it EVERY DAY!!!! :)

  2. What great work! I am not a knitter but so admire those who do. And I agree– that photo of you is a keeper. It shows the absolute love you are pouring into that sweater for your babe! New to your blog and can’t wait to check out more!
