I think I may have found my knitting mojo. Who knew it was hiding in an old torn up knitting magazine with out of date terminology?! Anyway, I started a sock friday night and by yesterday I had finished the heal flap and was ready to start turning the heel.
I’m really loving the texture of the pattern so far. It’s a really easy two row repeat but its creating such a fabulous almost ribbing effect. Though people, there is no purling except for the cuff (and when the heel flap is worked flat) so that is a plus in most peoples books I know.
I’m using Malabrigo Sock in colorway Turner and I think that this design really breaks up any inclination the yarn may have to pool. I’m really quite happy with it so far.
I have also been spinning.
This is the beautiful sunshiny yellow merino I bought in Minnesota from that amazing shop The Fiber Studio. Seriously, I love that shop and miss it. I wish it was right next to Anacapa Fine Yarns so I could have the worlds most well stocked knit shop & the best fiber shop ever 🙂
I broke out the high speed flyer for the first time the other weekend. It took a little bit to get used to it, but I think I’m on the right path. I have a weird beginners spinning issue with not putting enough twist into the single & then trying to over ply the yarn.
Bob suffers from this kind of attention more than our other cats because he rarely ever gets fed up and leaves. If the Mr does it then whatever “it” is must be ok with the Bob.
Funny enough, Bob hates people food. He has no interest at all in it, though Special Ed loves cheese in all forms (especially fake cheese on Mac & Cheese, he will suck it right off the noodle) and A Boy Named Sue loves (and I mean loves) sourdough bread.
