Actual KNITTING Content!!

Despite my recent lack of posts......I HAVE been knitting!!

Exhibit A:

Lynette Sock Yarn from Ruby Sapphire.


Exhibit B:
Jitterbug by Colinette

This is the yarn that I received from my FANTABULOUS Hurricane Sock Swap Pal...Jane.

I used a size 2 needle (typically use a size 1) and without thinking cast on 64 (my norm).... they are a bit looser around the ankle than what I am used to but after trying them on several times I decided I like the slightly looser fit of the cuffs and decreased down to 56 for the foot to fit better on that part. This yarn is so soft and "squooshy"!!!!

I have also made about 4 or 5 "warshrags" in anticipation of the Dish Rag Tag that is due to start August 1st.

Still no work done on the spinning wheel. Staining is complete....just haven't had enough time to get involved in the process of getting a coat of polyurethene applied!!

Wow, love the pattern the colors made on that first sock with the Lynette Sock Yarn. That's beautiful! I love the way socks look on sock blockers. I never block my socks but may have to invest in a pair just to use when I take pictures.

Socks! Great knitting. I love the color of the 1st one. But wouldn't turn the 2nd one away. ;-)

Wow! Beautiful socks. I finished my spinning wheel over the Christmas holidays when I was off work. It still took me most of the holidays to finish it up. Then I didn't have much time to spin. LOL!
