Last weekend I learned how to spin!

Here are the crazy energized singles right off the bobbin:
(they're supposed to be curly like that!)

Here they are hanging in my shower:

I hung water bottles off of each skein to act as a weight and straighten out the curly-q's.
And here are my two little perfect skeins!
Aren't they cute?! Just perfect little skeins with about 27 yards in each! I'm so excited about them and can't wait to knit with them!

Christmas time at Chez Knitter

Christmas trees, mother-in-law socks and colored lights!

Mother-in-law socks:
"Go with the Flow Socks" from Interweave Knits, Summer 2005 by Evelyn Clark.
Knit in Koigu KPPPM on size 1, two circular needle method.
This is a great design and it knit up so fast! My MIL is a gardener and the purples, browns and greens reminded me of a flower garden.
