Some of my projects from last week have been put on the back burner while I have fun test knitting stuff for Megan. I finished the Weather the Weather hat this weekend, and immediately jumped on board for another test knit. This one is super secret and this will be the only picture I will be posting until the pattern is released as it is part of a club.
It is my first ever attempt at a toe up sock - and I have got to say that Judy's Magic Cast On is the KOOKIEST thing I have ever done. It felt like cat's cradle. But I am very pleased with how it came out :) One new sock technique in the bag. This pattern is definitely more advanced than my plain jane vanilla sock...so we shall see if I can actually do it or not.
I am using Sunshine Yarn's classic sock base in Wanderer. I had purchased this yarn from a Ravelry user a year and a half ago and I've been waiting for a good pattern for it. Notice that it's not caked, but balled. Let's just say...I think the hank was re-hanked a few times. It did not get along with my swift and ball winder. At all.
Wish me luck, friends! I am going to need it :) Thankfully I only have to finish ONE sock for the test knit....so who knows when sock #2 will be completed.
I also played around with roving and a drop spindle the other night...more to come on this adventure at a later date!
