this guy, who is quite the cellist.)
I have purple spinning to report
Texel. Knew it was a bit rough, but I wanted to try some new things.
Apart from that, I've been going ahead with NEWT #4: Seven Simultaneous Stripey Socks on two very long circular 2.5mm needles. Here's where I am up to tonight
This is all self-striping, hand-dyed yarn. I like watching the color changes... you don't get bored. It does take me about 40 minutes to do half a round, though!
|"Unity" (so named because it's stripes of the Hogwarts House colors)... although I've been thinking of it as "One Sock to Rule Them All!" :)|
|"Mountain". Love how the variegation and stripes of dark brown are turning out. Behind that one is "Shadows" which is a gradient sort of stripe, going from dark to light grey. Shadows will be one of the Jaywalker socks.|
|"Glow Sticks" on the left and "Curcurbitas" on the right. Both plain vanilla socks, as are "Mountain" and "Unity".|
|"Rowena" will be a Jaywalker sock, too, and "Sunleaf" is getting a 3x2 ribbing.|
These two last are a thinner yarn, and BFL. All the others are merino/nylon sock yarn.The "Shadows" one is thinner, or maybe I should just say that the four which are all "Bendigo Woolen Mills Superfine Sock Yarn" are fatter than your average sock yarn. lol. Anyway, I cast on more stitches for the Jaywalkers (Shadows and Rowena) so that the toes would be finished at the same time, and the Sunleaf rib socks have a few more stitches. The plain ones have 64 each. The Jaywalkers have 76 (the pattern pulls it in a lot) and the ribbed socks have 68.
And now it's quarter to 3am again, so I'd better kick myself off to bed.
