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!

Wow, soinning really does change how it looks. Good to know. Now if I could just free up some time to play with my wheel. I am so overcommitted it isn't funny AND I volunteered myself to help a friend design a pattern for her cancer-walk fundraiser......

What was I thinking??

What about the third ply a woolly nylon for wear. I have some in royal blue or dark green. It's the non-stretchy kind. Let me know and I'll have Peggy bring it to the next meeting (it's at her house). Janis
