Back to Blogging

Well that was a long time of no blogging. It wasn't intended of course. Life got busy and before you know it, it's a whole new year! I've decided to pre-select some sock yarns to turn into socks this year. Here they are all caked and ready to go:


I started at the upper left with the extremely soft Princess from Rapunzel Yarns.


It's much farther along than this (I'm actually on the second sock), but I haven't had a chance to take a recent photo. The yarn is fairly fine and a bit fuzzy. I'm using 00 needles to try for a sturdier fabric.

I've also decided to spin more regularly, so I tried to turn this:


into a chunky single, which I haven't been able to produce reliably since I was a very new spinner who could do nothing but big fat singles. I came up with this, which has moments where it looks like it was gonna get chunky, but then thought better of it and went skinny again. Still pretty though.


It's ok. I have lots of fiber, and 11 more months to go. I will have chunky singles!
