I have joined a KAL that my favourite podcasters The Bakery Bears” have started the 25th of May and it’s running till 30th of June. The name of it is #BBOpalKAL and it’s all about to use up the stash of Opal yarns.

This is the one I have started with, a beautiful colour in orange and purple. The colour is: 9111

Happy Knitting!

I’m knitting two pairs of socks at the same time, nothing strange at all with that, but they are for two different persons, and this is the first time I do that. The first pair is for me and the other for my husband who for the first time asked me to knit him a pair!! No preasure there!! First pair of them both are done and I have now started the sedond one for my hubby.

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.

Yarn: Opal (Black) and ONline Supersocke 4-fach Neon Color

Needles: KnitPro Zing 4.00mm

Finally finished this shawl that towards the end really gave me big problems which ended up making this shawl to be a month late. Never mind, It’s done and I love it. I bought the yarn in Dublin this year in February. It’s Hedgehog Fibres Sock and the colourway is Spell. I love the colour of this yarn but I don’t like the yarn. It’s splitting a lot and it’s very squeaky. It feels like you are knitting with cotton and not wool, and it is 90% Merino and 10% Nylon. And when I was soaking it for the blocking it bled like mad. 😦 So I will not buy any more of this yarn and I have two other colours in my stash of this one, so I will use them but not buy any new ones.

It’s been a while since I knitted this shawl and this is the first one for this year. I felt I needed a autumn shawl so I knitted this one again for the 14th time.
