This is the first shawl that I made to learn lace knitting and fell in love with this pattern and I have now made 16 of this one and why this is number 15 is that the first number 15 was made in a yarn I didn’t like how it turned out in so I frogged it. So now I have made it in a colour and yarn that I have for long time wanted this one in. So do I use them all? No! is the answer because lots of them have been presents and gifts.
So here is “Take 2” of the number 15 of this shawl.
I am so pleased about how it turned out and I love using this one.
You start with the border and then you pick up stitches along the whole border and then knit the rest with sort rows.
This was the first time ever that I have done colour work and I’m so pleased that it turned out so well as it did. I am going to knit more of this one in other colours and I have all the yarn for it already.
Yarn used: Ístex Léttlopi Needles: 3.5 mm (US 4) and 4.5 mm (US 7) Pattern: Riddari by Védís Jónsdóttir at ravelry or at Järbo Garn AB.
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.
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 Danaka ObiwanKnitter, called The Bakery Bears).
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.
