Never been to Greece

Next shawl was a quick one and the first one I ever done in cotton.

It turned out so small but expanded well when it was blocked. I did find it hard to tie the ends properly.

Loved the picot bind off.

The Kindness Shawl done

Knitted this beautiful shawl in a stunning colour but wrong yarn. I could not block it properly because of the bind off I did (Icelandic bind off). So I might rip it all up, knit it again with a better yarn and use the stunning blue one for something else, because I have 2 skeins of it.

Incantation Socks finnished!

These socks were quick and fun to knit. The pattern is so well written and looks great, also fit perfectly.
I joined in with the designer Kay F Jones, from the Bakery Bears Podcast for her #BBOpalKal to knit up things only using Opal Yarn to free up some stash space.  I will defiantly knit these again.

Socks and striped ones.

For some time now I have been looking at these socks and wanted to make a pair. Now I finally working on them, but finting a problem. Where the coloured yarn and the solid yarn switch places, a ridge apears on the inside of the sock and I hope I will not feel it when I’m wearing them. Love the effect though.
