….to make up for two and a half months of blog negligence. Egads, I’ve been so bad!
So here goes! First, I finished the Twisted Tweed (Rav link) socks…
…but because of yardage concerns, I had to make them smaller than I usually knit my socks, and they’re a bit too snug for my big feet. So, someone’s getting a great gift!
Next, I whipped out another pair of socks, which do fit and which I wish I could wear every day because, man, this yarn is just awesome.
These are the very viral Kai-Mei (Rav link), which have, of course, been made by eleventy-million knitters worldwide. These, however, are made from Aleyska by Pagewood Farms…and they are part cashmere…yeah. You could write poetry about this yarn…and that’s not an exaggeration. Yeah, I love these.
I also finished a second pair of pedi socks, this time using some of my handspun and this time they’re for me!
Simple, cute, quick and it was nice to use some of my own yarn for these as well. The handspun is “Fuego,” a 2-ply merino/tencel blend, and the coordinating yarn is Cherry Tree Hill Supersock.
There’s also been stash enhancement and spinning and new projects and Rhinebeck, which I didn’t make it to this year but at which I did represent….more on that to come as I try to be a better blogger!
