I cheated

That's right, I cheated: I got (nearly) instant gratification by knitting some socks for Little Man. I made them out of my handspun, which turned out to be some seriously yummy fiber goodness. There's nothing like knitting with handspun-mine was so soft and delicious I couldn't believe it.

I love how the colors came out totally different. Luckily I'm not an ARK (Anal Rententive Knitter), cuz it would be really hard to get the socks to match.

Here's another view:

Little Man wouldn't take the socks off, even tho it's got to be 90 degrees here today. I think I'll have to make another pair for Monkey Boy too.

Those are so cute!! I love them ... My little munchkin loves to sweep too, LOL. How neat to knit with your own hand-spun yarn. Would you believe I had a dream I was going to start spinning - Ah! too many things, I can't I can't! Great job on the socks!

Those are just adorable. Is this the roving that you dyed as well? The colors are lovely.

i love those socks, i can't blame your boy for not taking them of, i wouldn't either.

i saw you got the crystal palace kid merino. i have a few balls, what are you making with yours, i still haven't figured out what i want to make with mine.

(ps, i'm a fellow corset knitter)
