I'm on a finishing streak!

Thursday, January 31, 2008

That's right, I've been finishing stuff up like a good little knitter.

First off, I finished spinning the rest of the Electric Sheep fiber, and plied it. When I finished I noticed that something was wrong. I figured that somehow I forgot to reverse directions when plying and needed to ply the other way. Nope. I managed to spin each single in opposite directions. Yeah, so I'm still deciding what to do with it. In the meantime I started spinning some superwash bfl from Pigeonroof. I'd like socks this time around.

I also finished the other sock for the sock club, but yet again I can't show you that. And I finished the thumb to my mitten. So I'm excited about that, and want to start another pair. For now I'm focusing on finishing some other stuff. Like these socks I started:
This is the yarn from the Socks that Rock club. And in the pattern they sent. It's hard to see it I know. It's doing a spirally thing with the colors, and the pattern looks bunched up b/c there is lace in there. I really like it though, it's fun to knit.

Today I got my January shipment for the Funky Carolina fiber club. It's five ounces of south african fine roving in the color Confetti. She wrote that she used 12 different colors for this one! It looks like it will spin up awesome.
My brother's hat dried and I got Chad to model it. I think it came out a good size. Bigger than I thought, at least it covers his ears. My brother has lots of hair though, so we'll see how it works for him.Ok then, that's it for now, it's almost bedtime for some cranky kids...

I think the hat looks great on Chad! I think you'll brother will love it.

I hope you'll model that STR sock. I really would like to see more of that pattern.
