Sock Yarn Rug

This weekend has been good for my soul. I’ve done very little crafting, very little biking, very little of anything blogworthy at all. Though there has been food, so much good food!

I finished my sock  yarn rug on Friday and just had time to soak it on the porch before leaving for an evening with my friends. It took all of Saturday and right into Sunday to dry, but this morning I was able to cut back the many many ends and snap a photo. I absolutely LOVE this thing! It is so pretty and I love how the colors change and chase each other. Most of all, I love that I can see my knitting history in it. There is handspun, and socks I knit for all my loved ones, and socks I knit for me, yarn from so many projects over the years.

I have more yarn I’ve saved aside because Bug wants one for her room. I told her she cannot have one for her room until the room gets cleaned out again. I am not sure if I have enough to make a very large one, but I did save the more girly colors for her so she can have what she wants.

In other crafty news, I picked up the sweater I am knitting from the yarn from my first fleece again yesterday. I hate that I am at a point where I am knitting such boring seed stitch sleeves. If I can power through that, the rest of the sweater should be fantastic.

While today will be predominately for cleaning up the yard and running errands, I may be able to get the last bit of my corriedale fleece flick carded. I plan to begin the drum carding process tomorrow, so it would be nice to start with an entire fleece rather than move back and forth between two projects for the same fleece.

In the end, my craft focus lately has been spinning related rather than knitting related. It doesn’t make for great blog posts. We will see what happens in this upcoming week.
