Three to go!
I finished mom's first sock last night (while watching mr.Bean hehe)! Yay! That means that I only have three socks left to knit! I also wound the wool for dad's hat and scarf, and will probably start one or the other this weekend. I'm going to wait to post a picture until the second one is done, just to get the full effect.
Also, I ordered a drop spindle yesterday! I posted a picture of it in the spin-along thread. I'm already impatient for it to get here. In the mean time, I've been spinning on my Louet spindle to try to get the hang of it. I'm about halfway through my white roving, and I'm probably going to have to wind it into a hank and even it out before I decide whether or not to ply it. Then, it's on to the brown roving, and hopefully that'll be enough for a pair of mittens in some sort of two-colour pattern.
Here's what I've got so far, lumpy and uneven as it is. I think it'll be fine for mitts though. I'm getting impatient to start knitting them, actually, so I guess I'm going to have to spin faster!
