It was a fiber happy weekend, with lots of spinning, felting, knitting, and general wooly fun. I finished the xox socks for Tim--the color is actually a pearl grey, not the tan they look here--but the important thing is the xox pattern down the sock. I'm a bit proud because I did the cuff according to a pattern but then winged the foot with the cable without a pattern, and it turned out fine.
And here they are post felting. If I was to knit these again (fiber trends pattern) I would make the strap at least 3 or 4 inches longer (15 stitches or so) since the straps don't quite meet the edge of the slipper. I'll felt a button for a closure.
I started yet another sock, the feather and fan sock from Socks Socks Socks using a multicolored yarn. It is gong well. I spun some of the merino silk, it is beautiful. Pics soon.
