Here is the sock that I started. I haven't been knitting very much this week. I love the shadowy colors running through this yarn. The sock is simple. The pattern is called Dublin Bay and it has a lacy insert that runs along the sides other than that simple stockinette. Gotta love mindless.
On the spinning front, I have been working on this bamboo for the last few days. I was able to finally ply it yesterday. I used thread because I didn't want to add thickness to the yarn but I am not very consistent with spinning Bamboo so I wanted something to help how it together. I love the way this turned out. The thread gave the yarn some texture and that makes the colors pop. This will be fun knitted into a scarf. Something simple and lacy, so the colors can shine all they want.
