Do any of you fellas spin your own wool? And I don't mean bags of raw wool from a shop. I mean, sheared, dyed, handled yourself and spun up? I think we could do something interesting. Let me know. I have a plan....
Hi everyone -
Putting on my social justice hat for a moment to encourage everyone to wear purple tomorrow in support of at-risk youth, especially those who are LGBTQ, for what is now known as "Spirit Day".
I first mentioned this about 4 years ago here on MWK and decided it was time to bring it up again.
I currently have a large knitting bag that will hold a lot of stuff...right now it's holding all kinds of notions in different zippered pockets, a drop spindle and some roving, a couple books, and three different knitting projects. It's great for carrying a bit of everything, but I often would like something smaller that would hold just my current project as well as a few essential notions. This week I came across something called a Sock Sack which looks pretty great.
Yesterday I finished one sock. Started the second. Here is a pic of the sock on the foot. I think I am warming up and liking this method. Need to get the other one done quickly. Tempers are beginning to drop. I'll need to be wearing the pair soon.
Hi Fellow Knitters,
I hate technology!
Here is my latest sock in progress, shown on top of the original antique pair.
I thought I would post pics of the finished sock that I wrote about a few weeks back. Once again, the goal was to reproduce this antique sock as closely as possible, considering the materials on hand.
