What I did this weekend...



Remember how I was going to spend the weekend knitting socks and working on the sock bags? Well, there was a slight change of plans. I did work on the sock bags a little bit, but what I mostly did was spin. At the top you can see the mohair that I did my first combing with. I gave it a really good washing and got all kinds of yucky goat stuff out of it. Now its shiny and pretty. In the middle is a pair of sock's worth of yarn from the Manhattan Roving from Linden Lane Farm. I left 1/3 of the original 8 ounces unspun because I'll spin and ply that with a solid color for another pair of socks (and probably get a third pair of socks from those leftovers and the leftovers of the yarn you see here - yeah, that made sense). At the bottom of the picture is another 450+ yd skein of the blue and green from Spinner's Hill that I got from MDS$W last year. This skein is 4 ounces and is within just a couple of yards of being the same length as my first skein of this wool. Hopefully, that means that I'm spinning pretty consistently. I just love the way this yarn knits up and while I still haven't decided what kind of sweater it wants to be, I will definitely be hitting the Spinner's Hill booth at Maryland again this year. Maybe today I'll work on the sock bags.
