SOS Update & Sunday Spinning

Posted on: June 25, 2007

The first Nightshade sock for SOS is coming along wonderfully! I did a 2×2 rib for the leg, a garter stitch short row heel (which is my new fav!) and now I’m cruising down the foot.

So far they fit hubby like a glove so it’s full steam ahead on these!

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

I’ve finally pulled out some gorgeous silk I was gifted with by Jan back when I first got my wheel. I was too afraid to mess it up for a long time but my skills have improved and while it’s not the perfect 2ply laceweight I was hoping for, I’m really happy with it. I named it Safari for future reference.

I’ve also working on some coopworth and silk that I’m calling Morning Glories.

Spun Stitches KAL: I’m making slow progress on the blue merino-silk. I’m trying to be patient and spin a true laceweight with this so I can get the maximum yardage and because my grandmother deserves the best!! But I’m getting really antsy to start knitting the shawl! This project has convinced me I should start saving for a Woolee Winder.

Hi Rebecca! This my first visit to your site. I also love to knit socks. Yours are looking great! My son wants me to knit him a pair, but I wasn’t sure about the size difference. Your spinning is beautiful also. I’ve not tried yet. Happy knitting form a sister at COTM.

The spinning does look awesome, I have a wheel, just haven’t played with it at all yet and yes, it came with a Woolee winder

Hey Sis,

The socks for your hubby are beautiful!!! I can see that God has given you a very awesome talent. I pray that your new adventure into business flourishes! I am so very proud of you and would be honored to own anything made by you!!

Love your little sis
