Camp Socks

When I packed for camp I decided to be a good girl and take only a very small pile of knitting and a drop spindle project or two.

It was hard.

It was VERY hard.

In fact, there may have been a bit of a stand-off at the van as my husband pushed me out the door without the scrapbook blanket and I begged and pleaded to go get it because I just knew I HAD to work on it all week as it was the only project that would make me happy.

Ahem.

While at camp, I knit a pair of socks and came close to finishing a drop spindle project.  I had back up materials for one more project of each variety. 

I was a good girl.

(I always have a pair of plain socks going...and frequently they languish for a very long time with only a inch or two done at the cuff.)

I love presents...you can knit me a pair of socks, or 2. And not to sound ignorant, but in this case I am, what is a drop spindle....
