At the moment I’m knitting on a blanket and the pattern is called Stitch In Time by Kay F Jones, and you can buy it on Ravelry.
Each block representing a month of the year and it’s harder than you think to find all the colours you need for each block but it’s a fantastic way to get all those leftover yarns from different projects.
I have managed to make 6 blocks and it’s now down to the last 6 but I now need colours I don’t have and it looks like its very hard to find as well, but I have a friend in my Facebook group who will be looking through her stash this weekend and try to help me out with the missing colours.
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.

A new year and hopefully a good one and time to knit new things, and I started with a pair of socks. I really wanted to use the yellow and lilac/purple heel as in the pattern but I couldn’t find the perfect purple to match the yellow I had, so I decided to leave them out and knit everything in the main colour that was almost the same as in the pattern.
Most of my socks are all by Kay F Jones because her patterns are so well written that you just can’t do wrong and this is perfect for a new knitter who’s learning to knit socks. I also like her style and patterns plus that I’m a big fan of their (Dan & Kay Jones) Pod cast The Bakery Bears and I’m a patreon of it as well.

I really hope this year will be a better one than the last one because I think my husband and I have had enough of bad things happening in our lives . I will not go into it all in any depths, but it started with my 27 year old niece suddenly died September 21st 2018, and then me losing my memory for a day September 29th 2018 and then the sudden death of my dear father February 1st 2019 and everything that comes with that.
So be kind to each other because you never know when they will be gone forever.
The Bakery Bears podcast duo of Dan and Kay Jones have split the Christmas advent calendar this year by doing their own things. Dan is taking the viewers out on trips to interesting places that have Christmas connections and Kay has started a mystery Christmas Knit along. So on every odd dates its Dan and even dates it’s Kay, so the KAL (knit-a-long) is a pair of socks with a Christmas/festive theme.
Day 1. Fairy Light Ribbing

Day 3. Tinsel Lace
Tomorrow is the next section and I can’t wait to see what pattern that will be.
If you can remember the house warming blanket I was making for my stepdaughter in England, then I can inform you that she has it now on display and is a very proud owner of it. I saw it in real life when my husband and I were over for a visit and it feels good to see that all that work was worth it.
