What a Clever Man! No Really!


This is the beautiful noste that my guy made this weekend. It was his first time working on a lathe and he did an awesome job. Now he gets to show me how make one.


Two more pairs of socks have been added to the "done" pile! On the left is Bordello socks in a mohair blend from Fleece Artist and on the right is Twists and Seeds Footie in something from The Stash. Only three semi pairs to go. Which is a good thing because...


...these have now been added to the sock stash. What did I think, the other stuff would get lonely? Must have been fugue state stash shopping again. The pink skeins are self stripping that I dyed myself. We'll see how that works out later.


And this is the reason it took me so long to get the blog up this afternoon. Parcels arrived! It was like Christmas! A couple of spindles I found on ebay, some gorgeous fibre, a Kromski niddy and last, but not least by any stretch, my little spidy from Tracy Eichheim. I am so thrilled, and now I get to go play with my new friends.

You can never have too much sock yarn, right? :D

He did a great job on the noste! What a handy guy to have around.
