Promenade Socks

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).

Yarns: Opal Sweet & Spicy Colourway: 8612 Honey. Opal Uni Solid 4 ply Colourway: 5184 Olive Green.

Needles: 2.5 mm, DPNs

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 of 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 finding 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.
