Friday Post

I have been doing some spinning this week. This is the current wool on the bobbin. It is a Bonkers fiber that I got last summer on vacation. I am trying for a three ply fingering weight and it is going pretty well so far. I haven't spun much of it yet so I still have a long way to go. Spinning finer yarns takes a lot more time than worsted weight.

I was trying to find the bottom of my knitting bag and this project was in the way. I have started working on it again. I am hoping to have it finished by the end of May.

My current "new favorite" sock pattern, Mockery. I love this pattern and this yarn. I am using Malabrigo Sock in Velvet Grapes. This yarn is so soft. I am not very fond of the really thin spots but I am enjoying this yarn otherwise.

Have a good one, I think I am going to go knit.

I'm getting a yearning for trying spinning. Have never done that before, or even seen anyone spin in person. Is it difficult? Is a class recommended or can one learn from a book? your projects are such pretty colors.
