Sock Swap Sock Yarn!

Handspun Superwash Merino (50%) and Tencel (50%), from Spinning Bunny (see yesterday's post) to handknit sockies for Lesley of the Knittyboards! It's a great spin. I highly recommend this top.

I'll let the pictures do the talking!


mmmmmmm.

ahhhhhhhhhhhh.


This last pic is sans flash...maybe a bit truer to actual color. But I love the flash photos because they show how the shiny tencel reflects the light and gives the yarn a silky sheen.
Now, to find the pattern!
4.3 oz. 400 yds. 16 WPI.

Lucky girl--handspun, handknit socks! The only way it gets better than that is if you grow the sheep yourself!

Gawjus! I think I bought some merino tencel last week, that I'm still waiting to receive. I knew I wanted to try it again, as I'm a better spinner. I wonder how much the different % offered by vendors affect the outcome.

Serious pr0n there. I'm having a yarn-gasm over here just from the pictures. (And trying to type with a cat on my lap, which is leading to much retyping!)

Oh I am so excited! That reminds me so much of the Four Corners. My last piece of research came in the mail today, I will be charting the socks this weekend...

That is beautiful yarn...Bezzie is right the only way it could get better would be to raise the sheep yourself!
Do you ever get to knit night at Yarn in Durango?
