Breaking out the wheel…

Yesterday I decided to have a little self-control. Yes, it hurt, but it was necessary…

You see, I bought all that lovely fiber on Saturday that I just can’t wait to start spinning (and I have started with the cashmere/silk and YES I can spin it. Too difficult – bah.)…but I already have a pile of fiber in the corner of my living room that is just as beautiful. SO I decided to grab some of that and spin it BEFORE I start the BFL from Foxfire.

This is roving I bought on Ebay from I-can’t-remember-where in the colorway ‘Roses’ (okay I made that up, I can’t remember what colorway they named it but it had something to do with roses…):

…and when I wasn’t spinning, I was knitting. I started a pair of socks from my handspun last week so I’d have something nice and vanilla to knit while at Rhinebeck (they never saw the light of day but hey, I was prepared for any eventuality):

This is the Spunky Eclectic that I got in my Yarn Aboard package – it’s knitting up nicely and I’m very happy with the color changes ;o) (happier than with the first hank-o-handspun which I still think looks like ass – even more so when knit up)

I’ve been slowly working on the Bayerische socks, but they’re not exactly car knitting so they’re moving along veeeerrrryyyy sllllloooowwwlllyyy and I doubt they’ll be done by the end of Socktoberfest. In my defense, I took 11 days to knit a sweater to wear to Rhinebeck…that kind of cut into my sock knitting time ;o) Oh and the Grey’s Anatomy knitting? I decided that I don’t like Falling Leaves so much and have switched to Elfine – which is also a leaf pattern. At least, I will switch as soon as I take the time to rip out the 2″ of Falling Leaves I already did…*sigh*
