One Crazy Fiber Lady

Finishing

March 30th, 2015 · No Comments

With the ankle being what it is, I’ve had more sitting around time than I’m normally used to.  It is getting better and I managed to commute into the office this morning without too much of a problem.  I am sore though and halfway from the ferry thought it had been a bad idea to even try it.  Sitting down now, it is much happier.  It will be even better when the ibuprofen, which I meant to take before I left the house but didn’t, kicks in. 

Anyway!  I finally finished that pair of socks.  It is safe to say, that was my last pair of two-at-a-time-afterthought-heel socks.  I didn’t like the afterthought business, nor was I very happy with the two at a time.  Might be why it took me so darned long to finish them.

The yarn, as it almost always is, is from itw.  The Rav project details are here.

Along the finishing line, I also *finally* wove in the ends on the last pair of socks.  These go back a long ways.  Didn’t realize they were sitting around waiting for that.

These babies are for Miss Kat.  And yes, as soon as I was done with my socks, I took care of hers. This meant that it was time for new socks!

I haven’t knit with my own handspun in a while, it was time.  I recently posted this yarn as I spun it.. The fiber was spun and plied on my Hansen.  I did it a true 3-ply.

Why yes, one at a time 🙂  Here it is this morning on the train:

Love it!  As of getting off the ferry this morning, I am ready to start the heel.  Which I didn’t do this evening.  Tomorrow is another day.

I also finished up another project that has been hanging about.  The knitting has been done a while, I wove in the ends. All that remains is a good soak.  Qualifies as finished in my book 🙂

This was my second Emergency Landing, and probably not my last. It’s a nifty little sweater and I’m quite pleased with how it came out.

Not to be done there, I also plied more yarn.  This final batch is 4oz braid of ITW in Inara, Polwarth/Mulberry silk.  I spun it on the Pegasus and n-plied on the Hansen.  It shall become socks.  Maybe.

And on that note, I’m tired and sore.  Going to enjoy watching pre-season baseball and call it an early night.
