Some progress made

I did manage to get Dad's Sockin Thuja Sox done before Father's Day. We didn't get down to Salem though, so they'll be arriving via mail. They came out well I think:

Last Wednesday I finished spinning up my Alpaca Direct Silver Alpaca singles. I plied them up Sunday as well as the mohair sample that Sharon had given me. The alpaca is ~359 yards of lace weight. Not sure what I'll do with it. I just really enjoy the spinning process and learning with each one. Sharon's sample has already been swatched so that she can have it as a sample.

I've worked on the shop sample, the Bonsai Swing Top from Mother-Daughter Knits. I just have a portion of the last skirt panel to do and then I can pick up the stitches to do the top. It should go fast from that point. I've just had these other projects with deadlines interfering.

Such as the need to have something done by Saturday for my mother who is arriving on Friday afternoon. Hence the Pure Soleil Top in progress (started Tuesday afternoon):

Last photo, the blocks turned in for the Doctors Without Borders quilts to be auctioned off at Sock Summit:


  1. Nice socks! And I love how the mohair looks knit up. Hope you are migraine-free and will be going to Haggen this evening!

  2. I'm following your progress on the swing top - I've just cast mine on and I'm a little anxious about how it will turn out.

    I love the mohair, that's beautiful!
