So Louise got me worried that I might not have time to spin and knit socks for my dad. Brenda reassured me, but still, life does happen doesn't it? It wouldn't hurt for me to bump these socks to the top of the queue. There's already a quadrillion projects on the needles, all lovely things, but abandoned for various good reasons. What's one more?
So I finished up the first skein of yarn and started in on my sock. The first incarnation was beautiful, though in this picture the color is washed out.
I loved how the cables popped in my yarn. What a thrill to see my handspun making really nice cables! But the sock was too big, and I was worried about my yarn supply. So I ripped it. boo.
So I switched to a toe up, with no cables, and here's the second version of the sock all knit up:
And on Sunday, I finished the second skein of yarn.
I'm very pleased with my spinning progress. The yarn is squooshy, mostly even, and a delight to work with. I don't care if it doesn't wear well, because truth to tell, I think my dad will love these socks so much he'll hardly wear them.
