New Projects

Since I finished three things in just one week, my poor two UFOs were looking sort of lonely, so I had to start a couple of new projects. Check out the socks I'm making from that cool Trekking:

I love the way it's turning out, mostly purple, but with generous specks of other jewel tones - blues, pinks and greens. It's color 78 if you're interested. (Me, enable? Never!) (Edit: The pattern is Chevron from Sensational Knitted Socks, p. 73. I meant to put it in the original post. Knew I forgot something:)

And this:

Doesn't really look like much right now, but that's my own handspun! It's the merino/angora from The Woolen Rabbit. The pattern is the Moon Dance Stole. I'm so exited because this is the first time I've actually used my handspun for a project. The stuff is so delightful to work with, so soft, like a cloud. Absolutely wonderful!

Love the sock! What's the pattern? The lace looks beautiful and you spun the yarn!? Very, very nice.

Thanks! It's a very cool pattern. I have some Trekking (not the color but nice nonetheless) that will be perfect.

Oh beautiful, isn't it fun using your own handspun for a project. Now I know why people who spin are so passionate about their craft. I guess I shoudl say our craft.

I've been wanting to make that Moondance Stole.

I'm still loving the Sensational Socks book, but I never remember to post my photos of socks I've knit from it to the Knitalong. I'm a bad blogger! I've been knitting socks from it all winter -- six pair maybe? My latest sock is one of them, too.

Oh they both look so wonderful! You should be proud of that yarn-it looks so soft.

Your handspun is beautiful, and the Moon Dance stole is perfect for it! Your color selections and pattern selections are winners! Are you sharing the sock pattern?
