When I started spinning my goal was to be good enough to make my own sock yarn. Here's my first sock yarn singles on the bobbin, Funky Carolina merino superwash in Royal Robes. I've learned that I need to start taking pictures of fiber before spinning begins. Apologies.
After the first week of spinning , I was rather productive. From top to bottom
Brown Yarn: thick dk weight superwash sockyarn from Enchantedknoll at Etsy. I've used 1/2 of the fiber to knit sock bottoms. Next week I'll post a picture of progress.
Yellow: thick fingering weight superwash sockyarn from Funky Carolina. Loved the way it turned out after I plied the singles together. This yarn will become the sock tops & legs for the Entchanted Knoll yarn above. I've started knitting the top to one of the socks-- wow. It's a joy to knit your own sock yarn!!!
Pink: Worsted weight Corredale from Pigeonroof Studios. She's a dying genious. Love her work. This yarn was given to a friend at work who knits and often leaves gifts at my desk! I also pointed out this neckwarmer pattern to her. She has a maroon coat, and I think it's a perfect match.
Blue: Crazy, insane ART skein spun from everything but the kitchen sink. Merino, silk, denim, mohair, BFL, Angelica, Cotton, Alpaca, Angora.... everything. I have no idea what this yarn wants to become when it grows up.
