I’d been thinking these took a long time! There was a Tour de Fleece in the middle, ongoing housing trauma, a US Citizenship ceremony, and weekend trips to Nashville and Chicago. It’s been a busy couple of months.
I wish the lace pattern stood out more when they’re on my feet. The variegated colouring takes some of the blame, but I won’t be using this lace panel again. The yarn is lovely, soft and silky but sturdy, colours are vibrant and there’s a good chunk leftover. It bodes well for the semi-solid skein I got from Lovesticks a while back.
Taking a break from sock knitting for a while to work on some of my handspun yarn. Spinning yarn to knit is like giving yourself a really cool gift.
