The knitting around here has been mostly secret, but I did manage to finish up a couple of public things…
Greek Isles Handspun Socks
Yarn: Handspun sock yarn in Greek Isles superwash merino roving (Pigeonroof Studios?)
Unfortunately one of my larger sock blockers is hiding. I’m sure it’s around here somewhere. I finished spinning the yarn during Tour de Fleece this year. The tag on the roving didn’t say where it was from, but some Googling has lead me to believe that it was Pigeonroof Studios. I must have bought it in person or got it as a gift, though.
The other project is a little shawlette:
Pattern: Traveling Woman
Yarn: Stitchjones Glam Sock in Marine
As you can see it’s currently blocking. It’s a very easy pattern, and a pretty quick knit too!
In other knitting news, yesterday I went to my LYS in search of a crochet hook for beading. I have some pretty little ones that I’ve used before, but this time my size 10 crochet hook (it looks like size varies between companies, but between 1 and 1.3mm) was just not small enough. Unfortunately, that’s the smallest size they carry.
So after calling JoAnn’s (no, they didn’t have it either) I ordered sizes 13 and 14 online. (0.85mm and 0.75mm respectively). Hopefully these will be small enough. I honestly can’t imagine how much of a hook they can really have at that size!
