The New Spin

My spindle and I are becoming fast friends. This is my mohair from my weekend of washing and carding. I have a ton of mohair now. The Louet Roving carder has that little wheel and the fiber that gathers on it is mixed and usually second cuts or something odd about it. I've decided that rather than throw it away, I would spin it and make rugs. Even if they felt they will be warm and toastie under my feet. I can bring my spindle to work and spin here and there and maybe make that rug sometime this year.

Socks.....Socks.....And More Socks!

Finished my BF's socks. This is my 4th pair of home made socks. I do believe they are getting better looking and easier to make too. These are some heavy duty boot socks, but your feet would not dare get cold in them.

Just Busy

Well Happy New Year to all. The end of 2006 and the beginning of 2007 has me doing some traveling. My BF and myself took a trip to Oklahoma City to see my little Aunt who is not feeling very well. Then on to Arkansas to see/meet his mother. That was a little nerve racking, but I survived and enjoyed the visit. The roads going were great.....dry and clean, but those same roads home were treacherous. I've never been so glad to get through Colorado in one piece.

I was able to get a pair of socks done, on the trip, but they have already been given to the intended recipient. Also made a bennie hat for my BF and he gave it away too. Hmmmmm...did he not like it, was it too small and is afraid to say so.....? I'm working on a pair of socks for him right now. If these get given away. I won't make the sweater I have planned for him for sure.
