It’s time for me to check in again…
I’ve finished the “Loksins!” socks, though it’s too warm to wear them now. (Not that I’m complaining. Spring is good.)
Pattern: Loksins! (links in previous posts, I’m too lazy tonight.)
Yarn: Handspun superwash merino, from batts by Enchanted Knoll Farm (“Wood Elves”)
Needles: 2.25mm/US1 dpns
I’ve started spinning up some roving for a large-ish project.
I bought one pound of targhee dyed in “Blueberry Patch” from Susan’s Spinning Bunny, and I’m spinning it at my comfort-weight, which should produce something near sport-weight yarn. I’m planning to knit a sweater with it, though I haven’t settled on a pattern yet. It will be my very first sweater knit entirely from handspun. I’m wondering how the “Apres Surf Hoodie” from the Summer ’08 Interweave Knits would look in handspun… would the striping clash too badly with the lace pattern?
I also started a pair of “Froot Loop” socks from the Knitty.com spring surprise. Actually, I started them twice; the first yarn I chose was too variegated and disguised the pattern. Photos of those later, as I don’t have any now and it’s too dark for decent ones.
And if you’ll forgive me, that’s all I’ve got for now. My final exams for this semester are coming up next week, so I’ll be scarce until they’re through. But then I have the entire summer ahead of me (a month sans Squirrel-Girls too, since they are in school until mid-June…) and my yarns are already quivering in anticipation!
All for now!
