Difficult as it was this weekend to make time at the computer to blog, I had no trouble finding time for knitting and spinning (are you surprised?)
I finished Andy’s socks.
“Dark” single, on the bobbin
“Light” single on the bobbin
Together in a 2-ply yarn
I ended up with just over 440 yards of sock yarn, which I skeined up into two 220 yard hanks. Andy declared it “the best yet,” as he has been prone to do with each specimen of handspun lately. I am very pleased with the way it turned out, as my method of dying the roving in halves produced a result that is just what I was looking for.
As for the weather, the temperatures have remained in the pleasantly chilly mid-20s, with nightly lows dipping down into the teens. Snow showers have been a common occurance, with patchy sunlight between. Currently it’s snowing rather heavily, which should make for another great ski day tomorrow! Sunrise today was at 9:39, and sunset will be at 16:57, for a full 7h 18m of sunlight.
All for now.
