The Latest Spin

Happy Birthday to me! Today is the day of the year that I turn another year older.....oh me......oh my.......don't feel any different than I did in my 20's or 30's, better than some of the 40's. So what did I do on my special day. Spin and ply fiber. Finished spinning the 4 oz of the black fiber and plied the red fiber. Had a lovely breakfast with my dear friend and my grand girls, and just relaxed.

With all the talk of the Knitting Olympics, and since I'm not going to be able to compete, I decided to do a KAL. I belong to several Yahoo Groups......just good fun people who have the same addictions as I do. DecorAccents hosted this Knit-A-Long. Here is my first loomed square of the Monthly KAL. This is the Month of Love Square. It's done on the blue Knifty Knitter loom with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn.

Update of Ron's Socks - You can see I have rounded the heel and we're heading for the foot. It ought to go pretty fast now. Alas, this is sock number 1.

The varigated roving I fell in love with at the Winter Retreat is spun, plied, and set. I did a navajo 3 ply. I like this weight of yarn more and more. Do you think it's because I'm spinning finer and finer so it feels the right size or normal in comparison to the commercial yarn I've been used to all these years? I can hope anyway.

The new SPIN - started on more of the black wool. My goal is to get the wool spun and the socks knit by the end of March.
