Another pair of socks by the lovely Kay F Jones (who you can find on Ravelry) and this time it’s the “All Is Calm” socks and the pattern is Only for Platinum Patreons of their Podcast The Bakery Bears.
Needles: 2.50 mm (US 1½)
This was the first time ever that I have done
Then the Blizzard Socks are finished! Another pair of socks by Kay F Jones and another pattern that’s only for
Yarn: Hatnut Feet
Needles: 2.50 (US 1½)
I needed to have a bit of a rest from the Riddari jumper before I get on with the colour work on the yoke, so I thought I cast on a pair of socks in between. Kay Jones from the podcast The Bakery Bears have released a new pattern for us Patreons and it’s called Blizzard.
So here is the first sock done and I have already done the ribbing on the second sock. It’s a bit hard to see it on this photo but the lace pattern is showing fir trees. I have to say that I love her patterns because they are so well written and the patterns are nice and fun to knit.
You can find all her patterns on Ravelry.
This is the first time I do
I have a few projects on the go and jumping between them depending on how I fell and the one that has been waiting longest to be picked up again is a bag, a Mochila Bag.
Next one is the Sólja Jumper.
Next is a pair of socks that I have started twice before and this is the third time, the “Hermiones Everyday Socks”
Next in line is the beautiful shawl “Longbourn” by Kay F Jones.
Then to the second “Sommarväskan /Summer bag” by Järbo Garn AB and it’s not much to see at the moment.
The designer Kay F Jones has done it again! She has made another fantastic sock pattern called Promenade Socks and can be bought on Ravelry. This woman should, in my opinion, receive a medal for pattern writing. They are so well written that you fly through it and end up with a fantastic item. And this time it’s this pair of socks, the Promenade Socks.
Pattern by: Kay F Jones aka bryonybear (she also have a podcast together with her husband Dan aka ObiwanKnitter, called The Bakery Bears).

Järbo Garn launched a CAL ( Crochet-along) that was starting the 2nd of July, called Sommarväskan (The Summer bag). they hade pre-picked 5 colour combinations that can be found on their blog or pick your own. The yarn was Järbo Garn “Soft Cotton“. I picked the pre-colours Oceaner (Oceans) but the order was so delayed, so after 3 weeks I canceled it and ordered from another place and also changed the colour-set to Lavendel (Lavender) after starting to see how the bags look in the Facebook group for this event, and I thought it was to much green and less blue (blue being my favourite colour).
The pattern was very interesting and easy to follow but the start and ends of the rows turned very ugly, so I decided to cover it up (I have an idea what to do). So I now decided that I will make another bag in the colour set Oceaner (Oceans) and work that start/end part better and make it nice and tidy.
So here is my Lavendel/Lavender Sommarväska / Summer Bag.
After this one was done I decided to make an inside pocket for bits and bobs.

Yarn: Järbo Garn Soft Cotton
Hook: 3.5 mm
It’s finally done and it did get a bit bigger with this yarn but it’s still too small for my liking and I think I will be using it from time to time. It’s a lovely pattern and easy to knit. I think I have to make this one again someday and make it bigger.

I have knitted this one already once but the yarn was wrong for it and so beautiful, so I frogged it so I can use that yarn for something else instead. The yarn i was using was #Pro Lana Golden Socks 4-frach” in the colourway 932 and dye lot: 60988. Stunning blue colour. I couldn’t block it properly to get the points out in the lace and it ended up way to small and short.
I would love to get my hands on more of this one in this colour but it looks like it’s a hard task.
So now I’m knitting this again in Malabrigo Lace and the colour is: 237 Cuarenta.
And this yarn is much better for this shawl.
