This is a Test. This is Not a Sock.


This is a test. This is not a sock.

I have not yet knit a sock, and don't promise to do so any time soon, either.

This is a test swatch for knitting up my Long Time No Sea yarn and its companion ecru yarn into a bucket hat.

This swatch has told me that this yarn will never be a bucket hat. To create a firm fabric for the brim, the needle size needed is a U.S. size zero. There is no way.

Lace. I will knit my first lace project instead. I've had my eye on the Feather and Fan stitch, otherwise known as Old Shale.

    Kristen, you blow me away! I just finished looking at your Ravelry projects and followed that here. You actually number your skeins and remember which is which? If I had been that focused when I first learned to spin, I could probably rule the world by now! SQ

  2. thanks, Susan! The blog helps considerably when it comes to keeping track of what I've done, and I started blogging not too long after starting to spin.

    As for ruling the world, not me, but I do intend to let a good portion of it know how great drop spindles are. http://thesojourningspinner.blogspot.com/2009/07/tomorrow-world.html
