First up, new man lace socks. Out of the ashes of New Year's Day comes, appropriately enough, Fawkes!The fit is good, and the Professor approves of the pattern. All is well in sockland once more.Next, here's some yarn I dyed on Saturday.The Sisters of the Wool had a "field trip" down to Heritage Arts. Angeluna has brilliantly documented the excursion, so I won't elaborate any further. Much fun was had by all, despite the heat.And we'll round out the yarn portion of our program by showcasing some yarn dyed by someone else.This is the second shipment of the Fearless Fibers Seven Deadly Sins sock club. On the left is Sloth, "a varied light blue shade often used to symbolically represent laziness, mixed with the slightest, subtlest hints of gray and lavender." On the right is Lust, "a rich and passionate shade of eggplant purple mixed with dark oxblood and crimson." Swoon!Here are the first singles I spun on my beloved new Lendrum. (Is it wrong to love an inanimate object so much?)I'm quite pleased. Although there is some unevenness, these singles are much more consistent than I was expecting for my first go. The wool is some coarse Icelandic top that came with the wheel, but it's perfect for a newbie like me. The heathered gray is lovely too.Finally, here's a peek at my newly accumulated fiber stash.There are almost six pounds of fiber in this picture, and not all of it is visible. It's piled on top of the sock yarn cabinet, waiting for a new home. (What? Don't all of you have pieces of furniture dedicated to yarn?) I'll find an appropriate vessel for it this weekend.
