One finished sock!

I stayed up way too late again last night. I finished my sock. I like how firm it is, yet I'm not sure if it's a wee tiny bit too snug. Maybe come winter we'll see how it works out. I've also been spindling a bit. It's amazing how much faster I'm able to produce yarn now that I've learned to let the spindle dangle. It took me a long time to do the white singles with the "park and draft" method - where you twist the spindle, then hold it in your lap while you draft the yarn. Yet I'm pleased with the results of my spinning.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I won again - on Dorothy's blog contest - she had originally drawn someone else's name, but they never got back to her, so she drew another name - me! Here's her blog -http://ddrbroderick.blogspot.com/ . And if any of ya'll can help her out - she needs some generous knitters to help out some of her friends who have lost everything. Thanks people, for any help you can give!

Socks are so addicted - once I get in the home stretch I always stay up way too late finishing it yet. Have you blocked it? Maybe it will relax a little and fit just perfect when you do. Congrats on winning Dorothy's contest!!
