Spinning for Socks!

Finally, I'm really doing it. Spinning my own sock yarn. This is Louet Northern Lights in the Picasso colorway. Which I thought was going to be absurdly bright. Not so much - see what spinning does to it? This yarn is going to be a 3-ply, so I have to figure out what to ply this with. Right now I'm leaning toward 2 of the Picasso, and a 3rd composed of 3 colors (bright blue, gold and olive green) in long color runs. Or maybe a marled singles of those 3 colors. So many choices!
