I wanted to get these socks done by the end of the month so I can be ready for 90% Knitting’s Alphabet KAL that is starting June 1st.  This will be my first KAL.

Anyway, here are the socks.

Remember when I finished spinning this 80% Merino/20% Silk Raspberry Ice handspun yarn?

Rasp Ice HS

Well, I finally measured it and it is about 760 yards total between the two balls.  They are going to become this shawl  (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pretty-triangle-shawl).  Sandy is going to knit it up because I really am not fond (at all) of knitting lace and Sandy is.  We’ll take pictures of it as it progresses.

I’ll have the new podcast up Monday morning.

Sandy and I will be vending with Dyed in the Wool at the Kentucky Sheep and Fiber Festival this weekend, so the shop will be off line beginning the morning of May 15th  through the evening of May 18th.  If there is anything you want, get it before the 15th because it might be gone by the time I get the shop back online.  We usually sell out of a lot of the fiber at Kentucky.

If you are going to be in the Lexington area over the weekend, come to the festival and shop.  There will be lots of great vendors there selling anything from the from the fiber animal through to finish product as well as all of the equipment needed to make it yourself.
