Spinning again

Ever since I picked up my spindle this past Sunday I've been hard-pressed to actually put it down. I've been spinning and plying and setting twists and blocking and winding nearly non-stop. This usually happens when I've been away from it for a while, as I'm fascinated by the entire process of handspinning.So, while this means that I've been slightly neglecting my knitting, it also means that I'm that much closer to a new pair of handspun socks. Some you might remember my last (and first and so far, only) pair (Ravelled):...which I made with some of my first bits of handspun. My spinning has since improved, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I come up with this time.

Some of you may be happy to hear that I fully intend to have a stab at the Mittens With Pints On (Ravelled) this afternoon, so we'll see where that goes. Some of you might be even happier to hear that I've just acquired the yarns needed to produce the Socks With Pints On, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. Things Will Get Done, all in due time.

I'm going to be making a pair of handspun socks myself out of some jacob fleece I got my hands on. Love the bright colors on yours!
