Recently my husband saw this project on his RSS ravelry feed and really liked it. Well, thanks to Ravelry I clicked around and found someone who had that yarn and was wanting to sell it.... So a little less than a week later we got this:
...in the mail!
I also belong to a barter group on Ravelry and sent off some DVDs I didn't want anymore, but someone else did and sent me this:
some milk fiber
a sock blank (sock yarn that I can dye now)
Some Targhee, which is a breed of wool I haven't tried to spin yet
...and a beautiful batt for me to spin - can't wait to see how this looks!
I've been working on a pair of socks for one of my daughters for almost a month now - and I finally finished them earlier this week!
I started with yarn that matched a tunic I made for her that she loves,
After starting both of them so I could work on them at the same time I had to get both of them through the heel...
Then I just have to keep working on them and trying them on her and working on them some more. This is how you will probably see them normally:
Once it warms up and spring is here though you might see them like this:
The patterning on them matches the tunic, just a little different, and then ribbing on top of course to help keep them up!
After finishing those socks I pulled out some yarn left over from a pair for my husband. I wanted to use at least a bit more of it before sending it to the sock blanket, so I started a pair, and before I could try them on and measure my foot, someone else claimed them.
So, a little boy will have matching socks with his daddy. Right now I am actually finished with the first one and started the toe of the second.
