Knits from afar....
This weekend I will have the privilage of possessing a much better camera than the one I have, so I can truly show off my work. fun fun! but for now, rest your eyes upon....
Yah! Socks on feet! The lavender socks traveled far across the ocean and have landed on my Londoner friend's feet. I can't thank her enough for her wonderful picture, and it came in this great card!
I'm a sucker for bucolic scenes.... If I could have a
baby lamb for a pet, I would. Sadly, city living
severely limits the types of animals I can keep hanging around. I even looked at the agreement for the building I work in, no pets allowed! I had fantasies of having a puppy and bringing it to work everyday, but those dreams have been dashed. Instead, I'll rest my weary, monitor-strained eyes on a warm picture of cozy looking sheep. The picture and card made (and continue to make) my day, possibly week/month.
I will announce that the sunrise/sunset socks are finished, and due to a cold spell here, my toes were happy. Also, I have moved on to the plying stage of my spin to knit socks! It is amazing how fast spinning becomes with some practice. And with my trusty Ashford Book of Spinning, I am well on my way to actually knowing what I am doing at the wheel.
Speaking of spinning - I did get my package from the Woolery, which contained a MUCH needed niddy noddy. I skeined up my 4-ply yarn, soaked it overnight, then frantically wondered what to do the next morning when i realized it should probably be hung up to dry. With about 1 minute and twenty-nine seconds before I HAD to leave the house for work I spied something that would work perfectly as a weight... Just add water. I'll keep you guessing until I have a pic of my quick fix! I was incredibly pleased with my uncaffeinated quick thinking.
