Weekending






It was a weekend all about fiber.  Spinning guild on Saturday and Amy's class on how to spin sock yarn on Sunday.  She's such a great teacher.  I took her class last year on how to spin for a sweater and I learned so much, as I did with this class.

The sock yarn pictured above is what Amy spun and knit into a sock.  The yarn almost seems like it's over-plied but that's what works for socks.  So my goal for the next sock yarn spin up is to get my yarn to look like that.  She gave us lots of samples in different colors so I think I will use those to spin for some striped socks.  So many possibilities!

And how was your weekend?

I do think a trip north needs to be written in my planner.
Every time I see what you have been up to I want to come and
play too. I know I've told you before, but you really do have
the best weekends!
Is it harder to spin sock yarn than sweater yarn?
