Knitting knots around the family.

Goodies August 30, 2007

This is the smaller skein of the first handspun that was spun and plied completely on my new wheel Etty. It’s merino, blue and teal blended, by a gal I know up North. She has a drum-carder and is fantastic at mixing fibers and colors. Let me tell you, it’s sooooooooo soft and squooshy. This was my first order from Woolgirl. I decided to order from there due to seeing what you get after your 7th order, and well, I was hooked. These skeins are destined to become a pair of “Springtime in Paris” socks from the Six-Sox Knitalong. Since they’re pinky, they’re obviously NOT for me. 🙂
These are socks that were made in barter for a set of bronze dpns. I need to wash and ship them.

A better close-up. The trade for the dpns is closed, but when it opens again next year, I’ll be sure to post.

Next up: baby hats and more handspun.

    Oh, I might know a little about the yarn goodies that go with the Woolgirl Club. She might have asked me to dye 50 or so skeins for her awhile back…
