I wondered for a while what I should call these socks. But then it struck me: Hazel Grace. It is the name of one of my all time favorite fictional characters, from the book “The fault in our stars” by the amazing John Green. The only reason I ended up using this name is simply that I love the book, the movie and the character.
The pattern contains instructions for knitting with US 2½ – 3.0 mm and US 1½ – 2.5 mm. The yarns I used are Austermann Step Classic and Filcolana Arwetta Classic, both lovely yarn for sock knitting.
This is a free sock pattern, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it. You will find the pattern at Ravelry. But you can also download the norwegian version her: Hazel Graze.nor . Or the english version: Hazel Grace.eng

This is my new design, the “Blue Wave”. It is a easy to knit scarf, perfect as a first-time cable project.

I tried knitting the cables without a cable needle ,which is absolutely possible because of the thick yarn used in this project, but is not recommended when you are knitting cables with a high amount of stitches.

Yesterday, I published my first pattern for sale. It is very exciting, and a little bit scary. The pattern is called “Sheep and bunny blanket”, and can be found/bought on Ravelry.
