Sit and Spin

This past weekend I drove out to visit my aunt who taught me how to knit. I brought my new spinning wheel, so she could help me with Navajo plying. It was my first set of singles, (8 oz of superwash merino) but I really wanted to navajo ply to preserve colors. Here was our wonderful set-up.

here is my awesome first wheel yarn! (and my second ever yarn! woo!)

Christmas knitting has gotten a little easier since I was sent home from work sick today and will probably be home sick tomorrow too, so my socks for The Boy and the mittens from grandma should actually make a bit of progress. The socks being in sport weight on size 2 needles helps- I’ve already gotten past the heel and cruising down the foot! I may put the pattern up on ravelry when it’s done- I think it’s a pretty cool sock.

Anyway, that’s all for now. I’m off to try and stop sneezing all over everything…stupid cold.
