The new sock is going swimmingly. The pattern is so much better when read correctly! I can see where it's going much better now. I've done about 50% of what I ripped out this weekend, so it is re-knitting fairly quickly.
In other news, I finished my spinning for May's CJ Kopec Creations Spin Along - a merino/silk/angelina combination in my favorite blues and greens. Here's what the finished skein looks like:
I say it's finished, although 3/4 of it remains unspun. Life has been so busy lately that it's all that I got done up this month. It's a laceweight/light fingering weight single that I intend to make a Wisp out of (since my other one looks like poo poo). June's fiber is 100% BFL that CJ Kopec handdyed. I can't wait to start that one, although if I am INCREDIBLY LUCKY I will have a spinning wheel before the end of June and can spin it up on that. If not, I may set that fiber aside and concentrate on finishing some of my WIP spinning instead. This next shipment of fiber I want to spin into a three ply sock yarn as I have someone interested in purchasing it. We'll see.
If you like my interpretation of this fiber, feel free to head to Coby's group on Ravelry, join it, and vote for me. You have to be a member to vote, although you don't have to be a spinner. If that's too much work, leave me a comment and let me know what you think!
