Wednesday Update: lots of work, very few words

I would love to do a Wordless Wednesday. It would be so cool. I think that I should set a goal for myself to work up to it slowly and to capture the best picture that displays the struggles/successes of the week. Since I didn’t do that here is an almost wordless Wednesday update of my current projects.

Socks
Om Shanti Bed Socks socks by Alice Yu. Here are the Ravelry project details.
Roving
Strips pulled from the long edge of the giant batt and rolled up ready to spin. The spinning wheel rattled his double treadles in excitement the whole time I was doing this…
Singles on bobbin
Singles spun using a supported long draw that will eventually make a fluffy 2 ply worsted weight yarn. Happy spinning wheel.
Cat on spinning chair
You wanted to spin? Whatever…

It’s raining outside and will change to snow overnight. I have the flowering plants that I want to keep inside and I am ready to ply this yarn tomorrow. Sure wish my bed socks were done. Have a great rest-of-the-week everyone.

  1. Snow!! Abi and Josh would be so jealous. We don’t get it every year here in southern England. It’s really exciting to see your spinning, I haven’t done any of my hand spinning lately, I really need to get back into it as 10 minutes a day really helps exercise my neck, much more and it does the opposite! The sock looks cosy 🙂 x

  2. Both were done with short rows in garter stitch. The toe was really different; you do a provisional CO at the top of the toe for 1/2 the sock. Then you knit towards the tip of the toe with decreasing short rows. At the very tip of the toe the short rows start increasing until you are at the top of the toes on the other side of the sock. You pick up those provisional stitches again, join in the round and suddenly it looks like a sock. It was confusing, but worked out great.
