 I have been in a knitting slump.  I don't have much to show for the last couple months.  I am hoping that blogging will get me out of it.  These are Vanilla Latte socks, I am using Lorna's Laces in the Circus colorway.
These are a slightly modified version of the Vanilla Latte socks.  The yarn is Biscotte & Cie in the Queen of Spades colorway.
This is my current spinning project.  It has been on the wheel since July.  The fiber is Woolgatherings Polwarth.  I am spinning it into a gradient.

Please ignore the horrible tablet photos.  I couldn't get my camera to cooperate. ;)

Tour De Fleece

This is what I completed during Tour de Fleece.   From the top for down, one braid of Woolgatherings Merino Bamboo Silk,  FCK dance club in Tango in Polwarth, and Mambo in Polwarth.   The bobbin is Woolgatherings Polwarth that I only got half of the bump finished.  I did start the second bobbin today.

I have a few projects that have been languishing for too long.  I am determined to finish them up by the end of August.  This spinning project should be done today or tomorrow hopefully.
I am planning to go monogamous on this project to try to whip it out.  I only have one sleeve and the rest of the body to finish.  I am planning to start the second sleeve today.

I also have yarn that I want to knit with during my time frame.  I only have one more project on the needles besides this one.  Maybe that will get done as well.

Third Pattern is the Charm

This is the third pattern I have tried for these socks.  First, I tried the Spiraling Squares socks, but for some reason I just wasn't loving it.  Second, I tried the Business Casual socks, but I messed up and decided the traveling cable stitch would drive me crazy before I was done.  I have finally decided on the Vanilla Latte socks.  I have figured out how to center them for the next time I knit them.  This time they will mirror each other.

I knit the Hamako baby blanket for my great nephew.  I used I Love This Yarn yarn in Peacock.  I did five pattern repeats.  I started it May 28th and finished it this morning.
