Oakworth Socks

Oakworth Socks By: Kay F. Jones

These socks have been on my needles for a long time and that’s down to me forgetting to use the lilac on the heels, because I knew that the gray wouldn’t be enough otherwise. But I didn’t realise my error until the first sock was finished, so I started to look for the yarn and then to my horror found out it was discontinued!! I kept looking for some time, from 1st of October 2020 till i finally found it in a group on facebook 2nd of January 2021. So on 14th of February (Valentine Day) i finally finished them.

Amore Sampler Socks

Latest pair of socks that I now realised that I should have used 2.25mm needles for, so I will put them in the washing machine on 40c and see if they will fit better after.

They were fun to knit so I might knit another pair at a later time.

Bullfinch Mittens

Now this I couldn’t resist to try out. I love Bullfinches and I want to learn colourwork knitting and fair Isle knitting. So I just had to give in and ordered the yarn in November 2020. I had other things already on my needles that I wanted to finishing first before I stuck into these beauties.

But now I have started them and so far so good. I just hope that I will manage to finish them, so wish me luck!

You can find the pattern on Ravelry or on their webpage.

Happy Knitting!

The philosopher’s Cowl

The first thing that I finished this year is The philosopher’s Cowl by Kay F Jones of the Podcast The Bakery Bears. It was a lovely and relaxing knit and all I need now to do is to block it. I used 10 different yarns to make this one And I think I might make another one at some time.
