I am having so much fun knitting up the second sock on the Flat Feet for Kaye! It's really interesting to watch how the colors move from the knitted blank to the sock, and I'm enjoying the process of trying to reproduce the first sock since I worked from a pattern inside my twisty little brain!
I also did a LOT of spinning over the last few days. I finished up plying the Redfish Dyeworks superfine merino and silk that I was spinning, and started on the Black Sun colorway of the corriedale pencil roving that I acquired from Crown Mountain. The fiber is practically spinning itself. I am spinning a slightly larger single that I usually spin, 26-28 wpi (wraps per inch), with the intention of creating a 4-ply worsted with which to knit the Book Lover's Vest from Folk Vests. I have wanted to knit this vest for years, and this yarn is going to be just perfect for it!
Now, I have to go and tie yarn so that punkmom and N can dye more beautiful Purl Up & Dye for Sock Summit. This is the last dye run before we head out, so they'll be at the dye pots all day tomorrow while I tend things up front. I'm hoping to see more of the wonderful Frog Tree yarns headed to homes where they will be knit up into fabulous new things!
