Not much knitting going on

Well, not much knitting going on. I have been busy with other things. I am slowly trying to work through my yarn and fiber stash and decide on what to destash. I have found 4-4oz bags of Hello Yarn fiber to destash so far. That and I have condensed enough to empty one tote. This is a good thing. As I work through this I hope to frog projects I will never finish and maybe even get an accurate count of how many needles I have in each size. I am a bit afraid the number might be shocking. Well, enough for now.

Socks Finished

Well, I've finished two pair of socks recently. One I posted here, another was a pair from before. When I get home, I'll post photos. I still have the pink/black/white ones on the needles. I think I've done two repeats. LOL. Not much progress. I haven't worked on either shawl. I did start a bias scarf with some handspun and I'm LOVING it. I should finish it soon. I'll try to get photos posted of the finished socks and the scarf I've started. I have the photos of the socks on my ipad, but the battery is dead, so..... I'll try to remember tonight to post.

On another note, I'm listening to a new audio book. "The Night Watch" by Sergei Lukyaneko (I think I spelled that right). It is really good. It is a paranormal series. Also, I just finished "Night Film" by Marisha Pessl. It was quite interesting. There were parts that I as afraid to read right before bed. it was so intense and creepy in places! Overall though I really enjoyed it!

Enough for now. I'll try to get those photos posted tonight!

Well, I am home now, so here are the promised photos. The green stripy socks are not really any pattern.

WIPs -Socks

Today we will start with the two pair of socks I am currently working on.

The first pair is made from Turtlepurl yarn in a custom colorway. It is the Kiellinie pattern which is free on Ravelry. I made a few modifications including increasing every other row instead of every third row. I also went up a needle size (actually is is half a size, from 1.5 to 2) after turning the heel. I was afraid it would be too snug otherwise. I will finish these some time this week.

Here is pair number two:

This is Kirby Wirby yarn in the I Heart Jack Ryan colorway. It is the Socks on a Plane pattern by Laura Linneman, also free on Ravelry.

I seem to be going through a serious stripy mood. I think my last three pair have been stripy and I have tons more stripy yarn to knit with! Tomorrow I am going to try posting the two shawls I am currently working on.


Hoping to start updating more

My goal is to start updating this more.  Then again, any posting would be "more". I just attended the Diamond State Fiber Festival.  I am seriously thinking I will try and vend there next year.  I am currently testing stripy sock yarn.  I'm not sure if it will be cost effective for me to dye it or not - that's the big question.  But I'm in testing.  Also, I'm going to try to start dyeing at least 2 skeins of each colorway since some people just don't like that I only have one skein of a color.  I am also hoping to make colorways more repeatable.  No guarantees on that though.  Part of what I like about dyeing is the uniqueness of each skein.

Well, it's not much of an update, but it's a bit of one.
