A few days ago, I was forced to take a few days off from spinning. Not wanting to sit around doing nothing, I managed to finish up the socks I'd been knitting. They still need to be blocked, but they're done! I did a grafted toe on these. Lately I've been doing a cinched toe on my socks, as described in an article in Knitty. While I really like the toe closure in the article as it actually fits my feet nicely, I feel that once in a while I should at least pay lip service to grafting practice. These socks closed up really nicely with grafting. Yes, they are a little long. Sometimes I make the cuffs/leg an extra inch longer just to make a more effective winter sock.
I did start a new coat for my husband. I found a length of black misc. fabric in a bin. I've the muslin made and should have it fitted later this evening. Then I can start cutting and sewing in earnest. As well, tomorrow, I should be able to spin again... yay!
