Finished (part two)
Socks are done. These were made from yarn I spun. Fiber purchased from Yarn or a Tale, custom dyed by Leah. I used my generic toe-up sock pattern, with US2. I have a fair amount left, probably enough for another pair - but I haven't measured yet.
They look a little on the long and skinny side because of the ribbing I put up the front of the sock. They fit really well, but it's a bit warm for them. I just need to make a little swatch and wash it to make sure it *Really* is superwash (cuz i'm a nervous person) and then I'll put them away for fall.
I have a small amount of alpaca waiting for me to ply it, so I can try to finish the barbie skirt and get an idea of how this yarn will work with me. Hopefully I can get to that today.
I actually finished my socks yesterday, but I was so busy spinning I forgot to post those new pics. So here is (about) half of the yarn for my husband's socks. I just need to wash this up and then work on the other half. (I might start knitting with this half once it's dry, or I might wait until it's all done... not sure)
This was the other half of the custom dye order from Leah, isn't it working up pretty?
