This was an ok pattern, but didn’t really get my sock mojo going the way that monkey did. It took me a while to memorise the lace pattern. These socks took me about 4 months overall to knit, but they were my ‘portable’ project a lot of that time, and only got worked on in the car, in doctor’s surgeries and at the in-laws.
My shedir hat is progressing nicely.
I spun a little mini-skein of bfl/silk that will eventually be woven. This was an extra little bit of fibre (15g) I chucked in with a dye batch. I split it in to two thirds and a third and blended the third on the drumcarder with some white bfl. I spun the roving first and then the ‘batt’ then plied from a centre-pull ball. I’ll be doing this kind of thing again I think – but with larger amounts.
I did a bit more dyeing last night and I need to go and get on with some blending.
