Finished Hedera

ss8537951

Pattern: Hedera by Cookie A from Knitty

Yarn: Fleece Artist Basic Sock from Get Knitted

Needles: Knitpicks options 2.5mm circs

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.

  3. I love your spun yarn. I’ve just had my first go at spinning, and feel that I may well be heading down that slippery slope. Hey ho, stash enhancement of a different kind!
