September Socks

September Socks (Socks with faked Cables)

These socks have a long history with me because I started way back in 2011 or thereabout and I was a new knitter then after a long pause from 1987 when I just had started to learn it back in 1985 with mums help. So when I put this to the side and left it for some time I could not see where in the pattern I was because I was not experienced enough at that time, so I ripped it all up and left it to that, but I had deiced to use this yarn for That sock in the future and that future was now in 2021.

I’m so pleased with them and the pattern is so easy to knit and it looks nice and I managed to make them to match. There will be more socks in this pattern.

If you want to give these a go then you’ll find the pattern here at Ravelry.
The pattern is in Swedish and English by Helene Wallin

Bits And Bobs Cowl

This knit was a real struggle for me. I never thought I would be able to make it but I didn’t give up and I tried at least 15 times before I got the hang of it and managed to finish it. I never thought knits and purls could be so hard and this is the Fishermans’ Rib and held with 2 strands of yarn. One was the main one and it was Cascade Yarns Heritage white and the rest was leftovers from sock knitting and shawl knitting.

I have to say that I’m glad that I finished it because it’s so soft and squishy and I might make another one in the future, now that I know how to knit it, but I’m not in a hurry.
