Seriously. I started it like less than 3 days ago. This is the sock I knit out of my handspun. I couldn't decide which shots were the best, so here are all the ones I took. This first pic I lightened in photoshop even, but it looked weird to lighten it a whole bunch, and it looks much more green than it is.
The colors are much closer in these next few up close shots. The pattern detail is very subtle, and hard to get in a pic.
This is the yarn I kool aid dyed today for my Morrocan Days shawl I plan on knitting. It's an orangey red, and I was going for something else but it will have to do. I may keep looking for the colors I see in my head, but so far no one has anything like it. I want a dark burnished red gold color, and I knew I wouldn't get that with the koolaid but I figured I could get orangey red, and I did. It's not as bright as this picture obviously.
Other than that, still no other fo's. I should have finished my shawl but I've been hooked on the sock. It's actually my first toe up sock, completed. I've started a few but never finished them.
So that's about it I think.
My loopy order is waiting for me at the post office. I have a few things I have traded for on Ravelry on the way. AND the big thing I'm waiting on is the Wollmeise I scored at her shop update. None are the colors I wanted, but I figured I was lucky to get ANY at this point. I really just want to see what the fuss is about, and the colors are gorgeous. It's the 80/20 twin yarn. As in 80 wool, 20 nylon. I got the colors Sultan which is rainbowy, Tiefer See which is a blue green, and Spice Market, which is browns and some orange and yellow I think in darker shades. We'll see though because they are the light and medium intensities and I didn't look at them I just bought. Heh.
Pics of those and more when it gets here!
