Last night was the lettuce knit anniversary party/cookie exchange, as I’m sure you’ve seen on some other blogs! I took my camera but didn’t take any photos, but you can see some great ones on Stephanie’s, Maria’s, and Mel’s blogs.

Here’s a photo of the little guy at the party, with one of my (pre-)felted clogs on his head! Cuuuuute. Photo by Mel.

I managed to finish the second one last night, so here they are, hilariously big next to my size 8 feet. They just need felting, and that’s another one done!

I’ve also finished another pair of socks, this time out of Artyarns Supermerino, on 3.5 mm needles:

Unfortunately this photo doesn’t do the yarn justice – it’s just a gorgeous apple green with the darker flecks. Darn sun, being all elusive and such!

Tonight I finally plied some yarn that’s been on the bobbins for awhile – I’d bought a baggie of silk hankies awhile back and spun them up in..I think it was November, on the thinner side. It hardly looked like any, but because it was thinner, the yardage was pretty good! I plied it with some merino that I finished spinning last week or so.

You can see the silk shiney bits better in this photo, I think:

It’s really, really soft and I just love it! I think I’m going to knit a Flower Basket Shawl with it – I just need to decide whether I want to dye the yarn (probably a burgundy) or not. Actually, upon typing that, I think I will dye it. I’m not much of a white-wearing person.

Any tips on mixing up a nice burgundy dye? I’m using Ashford acid dyes (I’ve got some Cushings left too, in turkey red, scarlet, black, and blue).

    I can’t wait to see how those clogs turn out! The socks are fab, too. How do you do it all?? Oh the sun hides when I need pictures too. Do you think he has something against bloggers?

    You know, I’ve been reading your blog for ages, but I never comment, so I’m trying to rectify that. My guess, although I’ve never used Cushings, would do a 2% or a 2.5% DOS with maybe 90% scarlet, 5% blue and 5% black? Or something like that. Maybe even bump up the blue and black to 7%. Good luck, it will be gorgeous.

    How many skeins of Supermerino did it take to make the apple greenies? I’m thinking of making those Thuja socks from Knitty for my hubby and am a little sad that they call for 3 skeins… did you need that much?

    Who is that very handsome little boy? It’s great to see Obe’s picture online. He’s grown so much. I wonder if he still talks up a storm. It looks like it was a fun night. Hello everyone!
