If you will remember, before BG, there was Herky! (Sofee's half brother - from her mom's first litter, with a different father). He is totally mellow and just the best dog ever! He's twice the size of Herky, yet she totally rules.... She is a bit of a diva at best! LOL
While I'm not participating in the "Tour de Fleece", I have been spinning.
These socks were completed a day or so ago. It's the Red Herring pattern by Cook A - From Knitty a couple of years ago. Handspun Finn and Merino yarns. They will make great boot socks for this winter. The leg, due to the stranding, will be extra warm. The toes and heels are very dense - knit on smaller needles for durability. I will never know why it's so fulfilling to knit with handspun - but it certainly is!
Hope everyone had/has a nice 4th Holiday. It's pretty quiet at our house. DH is home - which is good, as he's been putting in way too many hours at work lately. Our rainy weather continues - to the point of most firework display's cancellation. Sigh..... But we personally are not in jeopardy of flooding - and for that I am grateful! Soggy fiber would not be a good thing - not at all!
