I’m home from a very fun, very full trip to New York City, during which I managed not to knit a single stitch. Though I have many, many things currently on the needles (natch), I needed to get something going that I could take camping with me this weekend, to work on in low-light or no-light conditions. More Cut&Paste Socks it is!
This yarn is some of my truly early handspun, from four years ago (I had been spinning about five months or so when I made it). It’s Pigeonroof Studios BFL in “Bridle,” a delicious mix of purples and browns.
The unevenness of it doesn’t bother me, but it is spun and plied very tightly (pretty different from my spinning now, which, if anything, tends more towards looseness). This means the socks are coming out a little dense, even going up a needle size than what I’d thought, but I think they’ll be okay. I am LOVING how the colors are playing out.
No Fashion Friday today (though I’m getting ready to order another Stitch Fix, yeah!). Just playing catch-up in all things related to work, home, and knitting. The only fashion you will see me in today is my Detroit Tigers gear. Yeah, yeah!
