Happy Thanksgiving!

Merino/tencel. It started life like this, became these singles, and now it is a 2 ply yarn:




Approximately 410 yards, 19 WPI and balanced!

Yesterday I met up with Rosi G. I won her blog contest and she gave me my prize, a hank of Lisa Souza Sock! Merino, in Mars Quake. Isn't it yummy? Thanks Rosi!


What do I plan to do this Thanksgiving? I hope to finish a pair of socks for my sister for Christmas. I'm taking a break from the aran sweaters....seaming on two need to be done and the knitting of the last one. I deserve a break, and socks are a good way to go. Here's the start of Spey Valley socks in Trekking for my sis.


Happy Thanksgiving folks! Eat lots of turkey and do lots of knitting.

Oh, that is gorgeous! Lovely work there! Yummy looking Lisa Souza yarn too!

Don't blame you for wanting a break on the Aran Sweaters! You sure deserve it! :)

You did fantastic work with the merino/tencel!! I can't wait to get my hands on some of that.. One day.. Hmm that Trekking looks oddly familiar ;) JAYWALKERS! heh. I fully intend to gorge myself, on the first turkey I've cooked in almost 8 years! And with Perfect Gravy!!

Karen! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, too! :)

I am excited to see your 2 ply yarn.. It looks beautiful!
That will be my next venture in spinning. Hopefully I can take lesson #2 soon. Right now I only know how to do singles.
