Living and Learning!

I am taking another class to better learn how to make a sock from fingering weight yarn 
on the machine. 
 It turned out beautifully and you can 't tell how many times I had to knit that heel 
until I figured out what I was doing! lol
Sock number two went much faster, 
until I ran out of yarn.
Then I realized that this leftover yarn from the Begonia sweater needs to be used to 
adjust the size of the neckline so the fit will improve
 and I will not rip out anything.
Sometimes you need to step away from a project to know what to do.
I knew what I was doing when I breezed through piecing the rest of the blocks for the charm pack.
It will take a while until I am up to full creative speed again!

  8. Cute sock! When I reorganized my fabrics I was afraid I would forget that I wanted to use certain pieces together. So I pulled the groups I really wanted to use in a project and keep them separated. And I also wish I could find the black worsted I set aside for hats, to be sure I didn't use it for something else! LOL

I couldn't wait to sample a bit of the newly carded wool by using my favorite drop spindle.  Since it had been a few years since I used ...
