It was a good weekend...

I Finished these little guys, from my first handspun. Just in time for (-) degree weather.
I started spinning this Superwash Merino/Tencel to knit up a modified Calorimetry. I enjoy the first one, but wanted it smaller and daintier. Ala Craftlilly. This fiber spins like a dream, makes me look as though I know what I am doing and gives me hope that I will someday be able to craft fine sock yarn.
I also engaged in social activity with the Southern Tier Fiber Arts Guild. Just look at all that colour, creativity, and muse. And, Shelly in Omaha, THANK YOU for the thermos. It has become my travel teacup, fitting perfectly in the car drinkholder and keeping my tea warm to the end. Miss y'all

Yay for handspun socks! I'm kind of nervous to wash mine because I'm afraid they're somehow going to shrink. :P

Wow, Elysbeth, I am really impressed. Those are gorgeous socks. I can't believe you made the yarn and everything!!! I admire spinners. I'll never do spinning (don't have the patience) but I admire spinners. I can't imagine the pride you feel in having totally handmade, down to the fiber, a lovely pair of socks. It will feel like heaven to walk on those.
