I am designing a sock pattern to use with the new Blackthorn double pointed knitting needles. I found them online last spring and ordered a pair. They are quite unique, as they are made from the same polycarbonate materials as stealth bombers and NASCAR racer cars! They feel great in my hands and I love to knit with them. The pattern is called "Under the Radar" and it has a flight pattern in lace (or not in lace) moving up and down the front of the sock. I have been working on it for a long time, and I'm anxious to get it done. The pattern will be listed for sale when I am finished and the sock I am knitting is properly photographed.

Spinning hasn't happened much, but I do have one lovely, fuzzy skein of yarn that I spun a little of because I couldn't wait to see how it looked in yarn. I LOVE it and am anxious to spin the rest! It is roving from Homestead Wool and Gift Farm in Wisconsin, and the fiber is Romney wool, from a sheep named Annie, blended with cria, the first shearing from a baby alpaca. SOOOOO soft and silky and fuzzy!
Busy, busy, busy! I enjoy the busyness, though.
