Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts


A little stash enhancement …

I mentioned that I just might have added a little sock yarn to the stash during my recent trip (actually a couple of them are going to be Christmas presents – shh!). There’s also some Blackberry Ridge Silky Merino (upper right corner, Samarkand Blue), which is already on its way to becoming another stole.

Then there were 2 spindles – the green one is a Celtic Knot from Fox Den Fibers (definitely eye candy!) and a Cascade Mount St Helen’s in spalted maple which has a lovely finish. Funny thing was that when we compared notes later, my roommate at Knitting Camp also bought the same spindle πŸ˜‰ The spindles are joined by 8 oz of silver grey blue-faced Leicester that simply refused to stay behind – I do enjoy spinning BFL.

The other photo is the current sock-in-progress – the yarn is Lana Grossa Meilenweit Cotton (color #1010), and I love the way it’s working up! It feels great and the striping is nice and subtle. Can’t wait to get them done so I can wear them!
