5 – 3 – 8 – 3 – 2 – 18


This is a post about a lot of „likes“, „loves“ even. And all the „likes“ and „loves“ together count as „a favourite“, don’t you think?

In case you’ve missed my latest post: Well, I do love my feet. If I may say so.

I like using up the yarn I’ve bought.

I love doing things twice.

I love red.

I love knitting.

I like raglan because it makes a lovely shape.

I like having an easy project on the needles because

I love watching a movie while knitting or the other way round.


When I bought yarn for the red baby cardigan I asked for 3 balls. The lovely lady told me I shoud buy 6 balls. So I did. Now I can knit a second baby cardigan. Due to all the likes above, I’m making a second one with slight modifications and I am counting 5 (for the front edge, 3 – 8 – 3 for the cable, 2 for the stitches between the decreases of the raglan. And so on, and so on. As the pattern of this cardigan is quite simple, I don’t have to count all the time. Well after a few rows, it’s obvious when to knit and when to purl and when to do an increase.


Easy peasy, I love it!

I love spring, warmer weather and the yellow of the daffodils.

Lat but not least: I love getting lovely comments on my posts. Thank you! You’ve been very kind to me lately.

Happy weekend! And happy „Favourite-Thing-Saturday„. Feel free to join the party at Claudia’s.



  1. I wish I could knit like you … almost without thinking. You are so talented!

    P.S. Very well-written post. I wish I could write in another language as well as you write in English. 🙂

  2. Love the little sweater. It reminds me of my first attempt at knitting…a baby sweater and the color was red. A very simple pattern that I made over and over again. Your’s is much more complicated.

  3. Oh, I love this sweet sweater, Regula! You are very talented, my friend. I knit, but do you know, I’ve never tried cables? Silly, isn’t it?

    Thanks so much for joining in this week, my friend.


  4. Ein entzückendes Jäckchen, superschnell gestrickt.
    Deine „Hallo-Frühling-Socken“ finde ich auch gut. Für
    mich würde ich nur Zehen- und Fersensocken stricken,
    weil die Partien am Fuß immer frieren.
