Drop Spindle Spinning

Being a knitter who knew very little about spinning, I have always turned to pre-made, readily available yarn. Whether at your LYS or at one of the numerous shops online, there is a ton of it out there and seemingly something for every rhyme or reason...

Ron's Dark and Stormy Socks

Well, I've completed Ron's socks! I named them Dark and Stormy for two reasons. One, because of the blue and gray colors, and two, because I am a fan of the Dark and Stormy drink (Gosling's Black Seal Rum, ginger beer and lime).

Sweet Tomato Heel Socks

Has anyone tried socks using the brilliant Cat Bordhi's "Sweet Tomato Heel?" I bought the e-book last night and have done a heel-only to try the technique. I really like the smooth look as well as the ease of making it. There is no heel flap, there are no wraps to conceal, nor any stitches to pick up.
