So I'm participating in this really fun Blog where you knit at least one pair of socks every month and post them. SAM5. My January socks were OK, but I set a goal for myself of spinning the yarn for my February socks. I'm a very new spinner still, but I did it!
Mind you I bought white Suffolk Wool for $5/8 oz from someone clearing out her old roving. I dyed it myself (you can see the pile of dyed roving here) and I have finished spinning just about half of it.
Welp the socks are all knitted now too and I am totally in love with them! I know the striping doesn't match, but this was my first time. I have another batch of yarn for socks all spun, but next time I will try to make the striping match.
Anyhow, what do ya think? The pattern is waving lace by Evelyn Clark, and I'm keeping them.
The Chief took the photo and I said "try and make it look artistic." Now he IS artistic, but he was funny. He took a look at me and said, it's two socks and our couch. How artistic could I possibly make it?"
Man has a point.
