Look who's come out of hiding....

Season

Season close-up

it's the Season of Darkness and Winter Light. Trying to get her finished, but I fear it is too late for this season anyway. Nevertheless, it is a design I am eager to wear. I am on the second half, but will still have cabled cuffs and bands to go once I get this done.


I am working on some new socks out of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport. The design is called Rainy Day Socks and I found it at Magknits. I changed the cast on #'s quite a bit as I wanted the fabric knit a lot tighter than what it called for. I used 72 instead of 48 and am using much smaller needles. I like the way it is turning out so far. Pics to come as soon as there is something interesting to see. :0)

A little more spinning happening at chez sillyewe as well. This is from Somerhill Farm in Ohio.
handspun

It is a gorgeous shade of orange with a touch of fire engine red occasionally. It is from her Bluefaced Leicester flock. I ordered a ton of it and I am very glad about that. I intend to use it for something special......just not sure what yet....

As promised....more pics of birch. This is such a girlie shade of pink.

It may be too late this season, but whenever you do get to wear it - it'll be fantastic! I so love that design! Have you seen the new Rheingold colourway up on VY?

That bead book and the history are fascinating! So. Cool.
