Just a few more things

That lace I knit on “almost” exclusively.  But I did have a couple more things to show off.

I’ve been doing some spinning, just a bit!  This is a merino/bamboo blend which has the colors of pink granite.  I am going for 3 ply once again, because I am just so addicted!

And I began my November sock challenge.  This months challenge is slip stitch or mosaic knitting.  Now, I’ve never done either, so now is as good a time as any to learn.  Additionally, there is a mystery sock, and you all know I just love a good mystery pattern!  I needed 3 colors, and so I decided to use some of the colors which my aunt gave me.  She dyed them herself.  They are wool, and they are thin, like laceweight.  So I am holding them double stranded.  And, though they are quite bright socks, I am told that subtlety is overrated.

This is just the cuff, I have no idea what other fun things are in store for these socks!  Oh how I love a mystery!
