It's really been a long time since I last posted anything that I've been working on! I was scrolling back through my posts to find the last thing I shared with you, and was shocked to realize that it was all the way back on July 2nd!
Since this is supposed to be a blog about my fibery pursuits, how about I show you what I've been working on? Don't get too excited though; I haven't done all that much in 5 1/2 weeks.
I can't remember the last time I knitted anything that wasn't a sock; I do know that it was before Summer of Socks '09 began. My poor Cabled Yoke Pullover still sits with just one sleeve left to be knit before I can move it over to the FO category. I don't see that happening anytime too soon. Probably not until SOS'09 is over on September 1st.
Now that I've shown you what I haven't been doing, let me show you a couple of FO's:
Pair #5 for SOS'09:
Spring Savasana Socks
Dream in Color Classy in Pansy Golightly
Started July 11th - Finished July 20th
This is the second pair of Spring Sasavana Socks that I've knit and won't be the last. (As a matter of fact, I already picked up some yarn for the next pair!)
Slip Stitch Heel Basic Socks
That's it for FO's. Do you want to see my current WIP's? You might as well say yes because I'm gonna show you anyway.
Pairs 7 and 8 for SOS'09 (Hey, I told you it was all socks all the time around here these days.)
Toe-up, Short-row heel, plain ole stockinette stitch, sewn bind off.
Mountain Colors yarn in the colorway "Ruby River".
Gusset Heel Basic Socks
(This is the progress as of yesterday morning; I've done a couple more inches since then.)
I'm using the remainder of a skein of TOFUtsies sock yarn that I used for another pair of socks back in June of '07. One skein of TOFUtsies goes a LONG way. I split the remainder in half and am just going to knit each sock until I run out of yarn. I expect they'll be fairly short socks, but we'll see.
That's enough projects for today, don't you think? I have been doing a little bit of spinning and I'll try to get some pictures and share that with you soon (soon being a relative term).
I was away at Property Tax School last week and did bring my wheel and had really hoped to get more spinning done than I did. I pretty much vegged out in the evenings - didn't keep up with the blogs; didn't get much knitting done, got very little spinning done. What a waste of alone time!
