Three and a half months

Pre-wash, originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

I started spinning this on July 10, 2008. This one took way too long.

Details: Fingering weight 3-ply, 620 yards of Interlacements Roving. I still have a couple ounces to spin, but I wanted to move on to another yarn. I think this yarn resembles Trekking XXL. It will probably stripe with gray, blue, purple, green, and yellow green. (The colors aren't quite true. They're a bit darker than they appear on my monitor.)

Start to Finish, originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

See? I'm getting all fancy with a triptych. But I do love seeing handspun and knit items compared with multiple photos. These were fun to knit.

Pomatomus for Mother.

Pomatomus for Mother., originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

My mom has wanted me to knit her a pair of socks for the longest time. Hopefully, since she picked out this yarn from the Yarn Garden in February, she'll like them. I plan on having them done for when I go home for Thanksgiving break.

Up next, Finished Handspun Socks and an update on the Mystery Socks KAL

Help me choose!

So Many Ideas..., originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

I already have a ton of socks on the needles, so I'm running out of needles.


I want to knit some colorwork.

My lack of needles won't stop me, but my color indecision will. I think I've got the colors for mittens worked out, but I'm not sure which colors to use for an Inga hat. I'm thinking the oatmeal with the mustard, and use the pink as the other contrasting color. Or maybe I don't want to knit an Inga hat at all...

Any ideas? [Click the photo for Flickr notes.]

It's Socktober!

Mystery Socks, originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

Ever since I stumbled upon Through the Loops several months ago, I've been in love with Kirsten's knitting and designs. And this month, for Socktober!, she put together a mystery sock pattern. Last Wednesday, it was the cuff, and today it's the leg. There are two versions of the pattern, a basic and cabled version. I'm doing the basic because I cast on for the 60 stitch version, and that was before she decided to do a cabled version, which isn't designed for 60 stitches.
