Almost there…

I’m so close to finishing Millicent #2… I feel fairly confident I can promise finished shots for Wednesday. (I expect tomorrow they will be blocking…)

Just so you don’t think I’ve forgotten my poor wheel, I must show you that I’ve been turning this

merino roving from Spunky Eclectic into this:

(Sorry for the fuzzy photos; I’m too lazy to take them over today…)

I also received a new toy in the mail.

A Greensleeves Loki spindle, which I acquired from Kendig Cottage’s eBay site. It’s a featherweight ( 23g/0.8 oz.) in Masur Birch. I learned to spin using a drop spindle, then got my wheel, which fulfilled my need for speed. Now I’m interested in honing my spindling skills, particularly in regards to true laceweight yarns.

All for now.

  1. I really love those socks. They are true kneehighs. And the yarn you’ve spun is fantastic. Since you knit lots of socks, I wondered if you had heard of the 52 Pair Plunge.

  2. Beautiful socks – I hadn’t looked at them because I was afraid I would go mad knitting knee socks, but yours are so pretty I may change my mind! Beautiful yarn too!

  3. I’m absolutely impressed by your spinning, it’s so very beautiful! And your socks are coming along perfectly too, I can’t wait to see them finished in all their glory! Happy knitting!
