Okay, so that has a double meaning. I’ve made good progress on the fifty gram skein of sport weight. In fact, it’s done. HandspunBlankYarn

And I’ve made really good progress on the tam. Just an inch and a half of ribbing to do. Someone remind me when I get around to trying socks to pick a pattern that’s more interesting than “knit until piece measures six inches.” Call me picky, but when you’re not good enough to knit without looking, it gets rather boring.

Unfortunately there has been very little visible progress on the Etsy store. We’re still working on the web end, and I haven’t done anymore dyeing. Some blank sock yarns have come in, though. Hand dyed sock yarn is forthcoming!

Oh, and as a side note, chalk this up to the “progress” side of things. I finally got that pot of wool rinsed. I’m not sure exactly when the wool began soaking, but I’m sure it was in the water for at least a week. It was a bit ripe when I rinsed it out. I think the smell will wash out of it. I was going to selfishly spin this into something for my personal stash, but I may just have to let it air out for a few days. Anyone know of a way to deodorize wool?

    There are some very nice wool wash products that you don’t have to rinse out–just soak/swish and then dry. And they come in various alluring scents also.

    I can’t knit without looking either. However, when you get to even more frustrating projects, sometimes the straight knitting is a much needed break. :)
