Tuesday is for Progress
Despite being a tad tight, I still love these socks. The Koigu is a dream to knit, no surprise there. Both skeins are from the same dye lot, however the lighter colors dominate the sock on the left and the darker colors dominate the sock on the right. Groovy.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like knitting with this cotton Manos. It's that cotton that has a thread going through it, I guess to keep it from breaking since it isn't plied. I am enjoying working with it and since it is hand dyed, it has some subtle pooling that is quite nice.

My very first weaving sampler thingy. I am still in the process of finishing. Finishing weaving is very similar to finishing knitting. The difference is that when you wash weaving, you wash it in as hot of water as your hands can stand to help the fibers puff out. So wild. I would never put my knitting in hot water! (well you know, unless I was felting) The next step is to iron it, which I haven't done yet. Thursday is my warping party, moving on to my floor loom! Next project is a small table runner. Woo hoo!
