finished socks & new spinning

I finished Jake's socks, all 3 pairs! I just hope they fit. I'm worried that his three year old feet may be bigger then I think they are... these may be ankle socks, but I would be fine with that too!

I'm gearing myself up to start another shawl project, but last night, after finishing those little socks, I decided that I wanted to work on something a little less intricate and a little more mindless. So I dug out this gorgeous roving from DK Knits and started spinning. (I don't think she has an Etsy store anymore...)

These are definitely my colours! I think this yarn is going to be very pretty!


  1. Hi, what is the brand of your spinning wheel? I'm new to spinning and have been trying a drop spindle but would like to eventually get a spinning wheel.

  2. Hi Jackie,
    My spinning wheel is a Lendrum Double Treadle, I got the complete kit and I love it! I was brand new to spinning when I bought it, and it has been very easy and fun to learn on. Hope that helps!
