BBOpal KAL

I have joined a KAL that my favourite podcasters The Bakery Bears” have started the 25th of May and it’s running till 30th of June. The name of it is #BBOpalKAL and it’s all about to use up the stash of Opal yarns.

This is the one I have started with, a beautiful colour in orange and purple. The colour is: 9111

And I also decided to use their pattern as well. So a pair od socks called Incantation Socks by Kay Jones and you can buy it on Ravelry.

This is how far i have got on the first sock.

Happy Knitting!

Two different socks at the same time

I’m knitting two pairs of socks at the same time, nothing strange at all with that, but they are for two different persons, and this is the first time I do that. The first pair is for me and the other for my husband who for the first time asked me to knit him a pair!! No preasure there!! First pair of them both are done and I have now started the sedond one for my hubby.

Socks and striped ones.

For some time now I have been looking at these socks and wanted to make a pair. Now I finally working on them, but finting a problem. Where the coloured yarn and the solid yarn switch places, a ridge apears on the inside of the sock and I hope I will not feel it when I’m wearing them. Love the effect though.

The Snowmelt MKAL


I have joined the Snowmelt MKAL on Ravelry and was not pleased with my firs choice of three colours, so I frogged it and ordered two new colours to complement the one that I kept from the tree first one.

MKAL 1st colours


The new colours came Feb 28th so I started as soon as I could and last night the Clue 1 was ready and I am so much more pleased with the look now.


Here is clue 1 done in the new colours. I’m very pleased!

I have found this lovely blog that shows how to join granny squares with a beautiful Flat Braid Join between the squares. Absolutely stunning!

I’m in the middle of making a granny square blanket too called the “Friendship Blanket”, where some Facebook Friends in my group there are doing this together. So this will be the way I will join it together.
