Spinning and Socks
I have finished my first handspun hanks of wool. Yipeeeeeeeee!!! One is natural, the other pot dyed. The colours are actually a little more intense than the photos show, but you get the idea :-).

I went a bit overboard and ordered a selection of carded fleece from Trademe. Amongst the selection is a kilo(tee hee) of white Polwarth fleece which is apparently lovely to spin with, and reasonably priced.
And some coloured fleece may have been looking for a new home too :-). Tee hee.

The sock knitting is going well also. I can see why people become obsessed with it. I love anything miniature, and seeing the pattern appear as you knit is very
motivating! I’m using Opal sock yarn and the new Knit Pick cable I got from Vintage Purls
. The pattern is ‘Beginner Socks, Magic Loop Variation’
published in Liat Knits.
