Pretty Yarn!!!!!!

 FatCatKnits Quackenbush on Falkland

 Woolgatherings June Fancy Pants Mixed BFL/Silk

Woolgatherings June Choose Your Own on Polwarth

Woolgatherings June Fiber Adventurer on Superfine Merino (this stuff is AWESOME!!!!!)

All three of the Woolgatherings in the same picture.  I thought they were so pretty together.

I know that I have mad spinning skillz NOT but I want you to know that they were spun over the months of July and August so I didn't just crank them out recently.

These are the two pairs of socks I have been working on.  This is Desert Vista Dyeworks in Electric Middle Schooler.  It is a pattern I just kind of made up.  Since I took this picture I am to the heel flap of the first sock.

These socks are plain vanilla socks in Socks That Rock Lightweight colorway Rockstar.  I am turning the heel on the second one now.

Legos For the Win

It is amazing what a six year old imagination can do with some Legos.  I am always amazed at the stuff our son builds.

It is a fighter with laser and booster rockets and levers so you can control it.  I think it had some Kryptonite on it somewhere too.

Socks on Sunday

This summer I have been knitting more than spinning.  This is a pair of Hermione Everyday Socks knit out of Socks that Rock lightweight in Knitty Rocks.  I used size 1 Hiya Hiya 4 inch needles and they were a quick knit but I just didn't knit on them much at a time, so they took me three months to knit.  The knitting was actually done about three weeks ago but I just got around to sewing up the toe on the second sock yesterday.

I needed a new project one day so I cast on a pair of Vanilla socks out of Socks that Rock lightweight in Rockstar.  I am using size 1 Lantern Moon Sock Stix to knit these.  I have always wanted a pair of Vanilla socks out of Socks that Rock and these just seemed to fit the bill.

where in the world did you come from????  It was a busy August around here.  I went back to work, kids are back in school and I have been reading and knitting.

The spinning has been in a little bit of a slump as of late.  I am finally getting back to it.  This is my July Woolgatherings Fancy Pants Fiber which is a mixed BFL and silk blend.  I am in the process of plying it now. I am quite a bit farther than this shot and hope to have it done today or tomorrow at the latest.  I am so happy we have a three day weekend.

I started watching Knitabulls podcast this summer.  I am joining in the Sept/Oct self striping sock knit a long. I would like to knit two or three pairs of socks during the two months.  This is Desert Vista Dyeworks in Electric Middle Schooler.  I am debating on whether I will knit them for myself or for my middle school daughter.
