My hummingbird socks are well on the way to done. I decided this time to work on both of them at
the same a similar time. Jumping back and forth from one to the other has proven to be interesting. I was able to do both gussets before I forgot what I had done to the first, and the same for the heel turn and heel flap. Now I’m on the downhill, need a good (according to DH but not necessarily my favorite) movie on the tv and I’ll be finished this weekend!
That is, of course, if I don’t allow myself to become too distracted by my latest shawl project. I liked the variegated red sparkly shawl I made this summer so much for shape and fit that I decided to make another in wool yarn:
This is the Zephyr Shawl pattern by Lauren Scarpo and of all the shawls I’ve made, this is the best fitting. It actually stays on my shoulders, but is large enough to chase off the chill without being heavy to wear. As it’s an easy knit, I can see this becoming my favorite “go-to” pattern for a shawl. The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Fingering in the “Make Believe” Hand Painted colorway.
And I’m stilllllllllllllll working on spinning the Alpaca/Merino blend, but making progress and starting to think of plying possibilities. When I start thinking of how I want to ply a yarn, I know I’m getting to the end of the single spinning process. It’s just how my mind works.
I hope you have all had a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and are enjoying the remainder of your weekend in whatever manner brings you joy!
