Jade Socks and Fire & Ice Sweater
Here's my latest unvented sock design: The Carved Jade Socks
They were inspired by the beautiful jade carvings I saw during a trip to China. There's a bit of the back story in the bottom entry.

Right now, I'm in the home stretch to finish off my summer project :Fire & Ice Sweater.

This is the very first large project I've processed, dyed, spun and knitted. It's also my 100 mile fiber project!

Wow, both of those are AMAZING!
You're an inspiration, truely! Dyeing, spinning, and knitting amazingness all in the same person!!!

I'm enamored with your Fire and Ice two color cables, no idea how you do that, but it looks stunning.

And the socks are wonderful - I love that the pattern continues on the sole of the foot!

Congratulations on two awesome designs!

Oh my god, I think I'm going to cry. Having just played about a bit with two colour cables, I'm totally in love with them, but that's just stunning. Can I have your brain when you're done with it?
