Spinning, Knitting, and Artwork! oh My!

I couldn't think of a title...

Besides that though, school is in full swing here. I am FINALLY getting back into it (it only took a week and a half!) and I think it's going to be a very successful year, art wise. I feel like my work right now, not even finished, is better than anything I've done before. Although I may have just jinxed it!

Anyways, I wanted to post some pictures of my current spinning project. The purple isn't done, just taking a break because I wanted to experiment with different fibers. This fiber below is merino and nylon from Knitpicks, curtisy my awesome pen pal! I wanted it to be blue, but it's red, only because I can't read and thought the blue fruit punch packet would yield blue color, my bad!

This roving is very interesting to work with. I leaves fuzzies behind everywhere and pulls apart really easily if I'm not careful. I can't seem to make even strands like I could with my purple, so I think I prefer the purple over this.

Moving on, I finally finished a pair of socks I started last December. For some reason the 2nd one is smaller, even though I used the same needles and pattern. You can't really see the pattern well on this yarn, which is sad, because it's pretty. But I love the yarn anyways, the color is amazing. I will never knit with size 1 needles again, and I'll probably keep to 2-at-a-time socks now that I know how. I can't wait to see how these wash up!

So like I said, school is started here. I don't see myself having much time to knit or spin in the future because of it, however I do still plan on attending yarn shop knit nights, so atleast I'll get one day a week to do it! I still can't believe I'm a JUNIOR!

Peace out!
