And the knitting continues ...
Anyway, I'm knitting. Mostly socks, still. I'm really on a roll here and I don't want to quit now! :D Shawls are tempting me, but nothing else. So socks it is. I have quite a few more pairs to add.
First off, a pair of adult socks :
Pattern : Sea Monkeys, or No Purl Monkeys, based on the famous Monkey pattern by Cookie A.
Yarn : Regia Silk 4ply in a blue/grey colour
Needles : 2,5mm for the leg, 2,25mm for the foot
Started : June 19, 2008
Finished : June 30, 2008
These also fit into Project Spectrum, as the theme is Air and grey is one of the colours. I should have gone down a needle size both on the leg and the foot, but they are ok. Very soft! :D
I finished a pair of striped anklets, but I don't have pictures of those yet. I'll add them as soon as I have taken the pictures.
I have been obsessed a little by baby socks. They are quick, use up scraps of sock yarn and they count for the 52PP! Now there is no baby in the near future to recieve these so they are stored in a box for now.
And the projects on the needles right now?

Of course there are a ton more projects on the needles, but these are the ones I'm carrying with me today to work. Plus of course the scrap yarn for the baby socks. Work has been more then slow, and I'm totally bored. Thank god for my computer and my knitting! :D
As for spinning, I decided the join one more KAL, even though I was a bit late :
My goals are quite simple. Spin fine yarn, in the hope to get a decent fingering weight yarn, if possible a 3ply. Try spinning an art yarn. This all will have to happen on my Victoria wheel because that's the one I'm taking with me when I leave for France on Friday. And of course spin from stash.
I was going to take the wheel with me anyway, so I figured I could join! The days I'm at home I'll be seeing the Tour anyway as Bf follows it, plus we might go watch live one or two days as it's passing really close to us.
So, After my holiday I'll be showing of some spinning! I hope to post one more time before I leave. Otherwise it'll be when I get back (unless I get Internet access somewhere in France!).
