OMG David Reidy from the Sticks and String podcast sort of almost talked about my Nemesis sock pattern from Knitty! I nearly fainted dead away at Starbucks during his review of the deep fall Knitty 2010. He talked very generally about all the socks in the issue and said, and I quote: “There are some very nice socks here”. Gaaaaah! Did I ever mention that I’m a huge fan of him and his show? HUGE FAN! I think I’m going to lay down for a bit, feeling light headed…
Last weekend I went to Cheryl’s house to finally finish spinning up my Kraemer Yarns Mauch Chunky roving (colorway kiwi) on her wheel. Lookit what I made!
I left the yarn unplied. I estimate I have about 320 yards, mostly dk weight (apart from some thick and thin bits here and there). Not too bad for my first real attempt at wheel spinning!
The brighter green in the first photo is closer to the actual color. It’s not very soft, unfortunately. I don’t have a clue what to knit it into. Any ideas?
