Okay, desperation is a little strong. But what does a knit blogger post when there isn't much to post? Yep, sock-in-progress pics. Here are the Trekking 100's. Now that I'm a soccer mom (yikes!) I've been getting a bit of sock knitting done at the weekly practices.
So why post a sock in progress? It's more that the weather is dark and gloomy -- hence too difficult to get decent pictures -- than a lack of things to show. I do have that "Amazon" colorway spun, plied and washed. And I spun up "Merlot" too. I do have a picture of that:
It's rested for a couple of days on the spindle now, so I should be able to Andean ply it tonight.
I've spent a lot of time reading this past week though. I'm making my way through Eragon and I'm liking it quite well. Sure you can tell he was pretty young when he wrote it, but it's still impressive.
I also picked up a couple of old needle arts books while out thrifting this week. They cover everything from knitting to macrame. I'll try to scan in some pictures later this week!
