Muted Brights Handspun Sock Yarn
Spun from the fleeces I had processed at Spinderella's! Spun from this fiber, which I blogged about on The House of Wool Repute already.
The light wasn't perfect this morning, the yarn appears a lot more mellow that in actually is. But, it really did mellow out a lot when I plied the singles together
Dyed with four packets of grape KoolAid and six packets of lemon KoolAid. I did a normal 2-ply, adding a bit more twist into both the singles and the plying than I would if I was spinning a yarn for knitting baby clothes or lace.
I finished a pair of socks last night, so tonight I'll wind these skeins into cakes and cast on for a pair with this yarn. I'm curious to see how my super-slapdash dye job ends up looking knitted. Plus, I need a new pair of socks for distraction and taking in the car, labor...all that :).
Specs: The bump pre-dyeing was about 150g. I didn't weight the finished yarn this morning because it was still damp from last nights bath.
Approximately 350 m/380 yds of a fingering weight sock yarn total.
Have an excellent weekend everyone! No big plans here, unless baby decides its time :).
