WIP Wednesday: Regia Socks

I am working on a pair of socks for my oldest daughter.  She likes purple and I found some nice Regia yarn in that color scheme.  I am doing 2 at a time socks and am working on the foot.

Also, in two weeks, I am going to have my first lesson in learning how to spin on a spindle.  If I like spinning, maybe in a few years I can buy a little wheel.  But right now my budget is going to be stretched to cover hand cards and a spindle or two (one for wool and one for cotton/angora).  In honor of spinning, I found a great deal on baby alpaca wool (cria) that is ready to go.

And just so you can have another look at the whole reason, I want to learn to spin, here is a current picture of Princess Honey Bunny, our little angora.
