The Usual

I am nothing if not predictable when it comes to my handspun. Take my latest. It's superwash merino, so naturally I spun a three-ply sock yarn. Here it was before:

and after:

This was for the All Spun Up May/June Ravelry spinalong, where we all get the same fiber (though everything but the fiber type is a surprise until we get it) and then spin it as we see fit. I surprised myself with the yardage, approximately 430 yards. Should make me a nice pair of socks!

WOW! I love, love, love that colorway! You are getting better and better at this and I'm so proud of you. Have you thought about knitting a shawl instead of socks?
