The Longbourn Shawl

Longbourn by Kay F Jones.

When I saw this shawl for the first time I just fell in love with it on the spot and just had to knit it, it’s the Longbourn by Kay F Jones.

Kay also dyed up the three sets of colours for this shawl for her Etsy shop, but they went in seconds, so she dyed up another batch that went just as fast so I had to find my yarn somewhere else.

The three colours where Blue, Pink and purple and I wanted the purple with the silvery grey border. The blue one is pictured above.

These were the colours that I brought for mine
Here they are caked up .

I really wanted a lighter purple but couldn’t find any, so I also bought a darker silver/grey.

All I now need to do is to wash it and block it and I’m very pleased with it.

Twinkle & Dance Socks

Pattern by Kay F Jones

Another pair of socks by Kay F Jones and they were part of a collection she made inspired by Harry Potter, and the collection is called “The Swish and Flick Collective“. This collection holds 8 patterns and not all were socks.

The inspiration for these socks is from The Yule Ball and she wanted to capture the feeling of being stood in the Great Hall and the lace pattern depicts the windows that surround the Great Hall. The twinkly stitch pattern that flows down from the windows and over the foot represents the magically frosted walls, and it was That! that made me use the silver thread in it.

Very pleased with them and a perfect fit.
The yarn was held with this thin tinsel silver thread by Gütermann.
