Recent Knits and spins

Well, you were begging for photos...and here they are....my stripey socks. I still have to tuck all the ends in, but the actuall 'knitting' is done.

Now these mitts were the ones I was supposed to hand to my sister, along with her HP potholders, (which I will post shortly) the swirls on the glovelets were done with a metalic thread/viscose/misc yarn.

For myself I made a really simple baby alpaca hat a la purple (cameras never do it justice)

And last but not least, the wool I picked up for spinning on the TTC knitalong is finished. Still not sure what to make with my handspuns..but Im sure I will think of something. I call it my pumpkin yarn cause it changes from browns and oranges throughout the whole thing and reminds me a bit of Hallowe'en
