Monday is for show and tell

So loads to show & tell today!


My pattern, Algormortis finally went live today on Anticraft! Check it out! Thanks to Sylvana, & Lorraine for being my helpy test-knitters :-)

Next Up: Preppy Socks


I am on a sock binge lately, somewhat aided along by the staff free-leftover-yarn bin at work. These are being made from some leftover Kroy from aforementioned bin.


I finished spinning a skein of yarn on my Ashford Drop Spindle!


It is about 65 meters long, so I guess I'll need to spin one more if I actually want to make something out of it. I haven't done a swatch yet, but I'm guessing it is around a worsted/aran weight.

AND FINALLY, LAST BUT NOT LEAST: I got a spinning wheel!


My friend Tiffany suddenly found herself with too many spinning wheels, so she sold me this Ram Spinner for a great price! She also, so very kindly offered to come and teach me the ropes sometime soon. Here it is modelling the drop spindle yarn.


Happy knitting, & spinning!

Hi there! I wonder what you can tell me about the Ram Spinner? My sister recently got me a used wheel (I will get it at Christmas), and I can't find much about it online. It looks like a Louet?
