New year, new fiber

I can hardly believe it's nearly the middle of January already! Knitting has been high on my list of projects lately. Since finishing my first pair of socks last summer, I've gone on to knit six more pairs and am working on another. The sock currently on my knitting needles is hot pink, almost red. They will be, umm, noticeable.

After church yesterday, I headed to Augusta, GA, to the Tangled Threads guild meeting. It's a group of fiber enthusiasts who meet once a month and everyone brings a current project--knitting, tatting, spinning, crocheting. It's great fun to see what other people are making. Yesterday there was a cowl, a pair of socks, a sweater, a dress and a scarf, all being knitted.

There were also four spinners, including me. I started spinning a fiber blend of camel, merino wool and silk. It's very slippery, but drafts beautifully. I'm not sure yet what it's going to be when it grows up, but it's behaving nicely right now.
