Hope you are having a nice week.
Trying on a new pair of socks before I weave in the ends. I used the same yarn for my favorite pair of leg warmers (different colorway).
Do you knit socks? If not, I think you should. It’s so satisfying to knit a pair of perfect fitting socks. (Even if they are small like these which can be finished in a few days.) This book has always been very helpful…
….fun to play at the end…..
cream hand spun
and at the loom
threading the heddles
My favorite part of the process. These bundles are tied looser than the last time I used this material. Threading with sticky, slightly stiff threads. Knowing how to work with them and not against them. Also reflective of my state as I work. A bit more comfortable and free (while still maintaining order during set up).
