I am using Studio June Sock Yarn from her 2011 Sock Club. Yes, I have a sock obsession and I'm not afraid to admit it. I was buying sock yarn long before I was knitting socks and now I am finally starting to put a dent in my bin of sock yarn. Since I picked such a colorful yarn to knit with, I decided to ignore the stripes. I am very pleased with how this sock is turning out and hopefully by Sunday I will be casting on it's mate.

I've also been spinning up some lovely yarn. I've dyed some new fibers that I have in my Etsy Shop of Wonder. I have this Merino/Bamboo/Nylon blend that I've been spinning up which has been a lot of fun.
I also have been spinning 100% Cormo. It's the first time I've ever spun Cormo. My friend Char owns Corm 24-7 and I finally got some of my roving to spin. It is lovely. I'm on the second bobbin so so I shall be plying.
So...that's been my week. I haven't been busy at all ;-) Not at all. Share your adventures in Fiber Arts!
