Well it is all GOLD GOLD GOLD here! yes, I have not quite done a Bradbury, cos I've seen a few who are much more under the pump than me (say Hi to Steph, everyone!), but here is the gold medal winning outcome:
Yes, two socks!
a fuzzy shot of the heel (very hard taking pics of your own heel unless you have abs of steel)
and a BIG thank you to my support crew!
Project: pomatomus by Cookie A from the Winter 06 Knitty. Yarn - Cherry Tree Hill pot luck blues/purples. (No, I have not yet washed them. Yes I did get lots of colour on my hands and my bamboo needles are now green. Very pretty.) I finished them last night when I was supposed to be at a friend's birthday party. Ooops.
*phew* it is done! Now I can get back to normal things, like knitting socks. LOL and spinning! I've prepped some more fleece tonight - I dyed it a while ago. here's some of the locks before puffing (note that they have badly damaged tips - this was a lamb fleece and I presume she had a bit of meconium in the tips)
and after I fluffed them with a dog slicker using the tile you can see in the first shot to protect my legs:
People use vinyl to protect themselves from the slickers/combs. I don't like vinyl. The tile cost 90c, has high embodied energy (bad!) but can be reused (it can be smashed up and used in potting mix.)
After an afternoon moving sheet metal and large lumps of timber, grinding out rot from a post of the garage, moving mulch, chopping down plants, brushing out a heap of 3/4 finn/merino cross dyed fleece and three blog posts, I am done in for the day! Have a nice week, y'all - I'll be back
