I have been travelling a bit with work again, this time to the east coast. That's a good 4 hours of knitting time right there! (Well knitting, napping and trying to catch up with emails :))
I do attribute some of that flight time to being able to finish a pair of socks in a couple of weeks (it has to be a record for me!):
The yarn is a handspun and hand dyed fiber from Sereknitty, in colourway 'Wild Side'. These bright colours make me happy. As does handspun in general. There's something very special about a handspun yarn, and the fabric it creates. It has such an allure that there have been a number of times I have considered taking a class in spinning to see if it is something that I'd enjoy. Truly though, I really don't need another crafty hobby, or to build up more stash and tools to support another crafty hobby. Still there's that allure... ;o)
The pattern is a basic vanilla sock, on my new size 2s. I really enjoyed working with my new signature needles - gotta be careful with those points though (super sharp).
So onto the next pair of socks. This time some man socks for Joe:
Hope you are enjoying a lovely father's day with loved ones.
