AtÃ‚Â VY&T on Saturday it was pointed out to me, more than once, by more than one person, that it had been a while since I had updated my blog.Ã‚Â Comments about “the green socks still being there” and hints about possibily posting abounded.Ã‚Â So, with out further ado, more green socks!

I’ve been doing some spinning too. Yes, I have fallen to the dark side.Ã‚Â On Thursday IÃ‚Â spun up the remaining roving from my class, then on Friday I wacked together a lazy kate so I could do some plying.
I am actually quite pleased with my first finished yarn.Ã‚Â
Ã‚Â . . . and another FO!
pattern:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Spinner’s Shawl by Evelyn Clark
yarn:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Silky Wool
needles: Ã‚Â Clover Bamboo US8
cast on:Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Dec 2ndÃ‚Â cast off:Ã‚Â Dec 10th
notes:Ã‚Â Love this pattern, though it did turn out larger than I had planned.Ã‚Â The border is quite wide, which I chose to have amnesia about while knitting.Ã‚Â The cast off is great, nice and stretchy!
Since I had spun up all the roving I had,Ã‚Â I picked up some more on Saturday. Ã‚Â Practice, practice, practice!Ã‚Â What holiday knitting?!Ã‚Â
