In the Nick of Time

From fiber ...

to yarn ...

to socks!

Pattern: my basic stockinette recipe, with 2x2 ribbed cuffs and eye of partridge heels
Yarn: my handspun, 3-ply superfine merino from All Spun Up
Needles: two 12" US 1 (2.5 mm) Addi Turbo circs
Started/Completed: November 13/November 25

There really is no greater pleasure than knitting with your own handspun. I'm looking forward to repeating the experience as many times as possible -- including with the leftovers of this yarn, which are enough to make quite a few baby socks.

Happy Thanksgiving!


  1. I can only imagine the pleasure! You are getting better and better at this spinning thingy.

  2. How did you split your roving? I just love how it knits up! I think I will do a 3ply with my 2nd braid, love love love!!!

  3. Those are TOO cool! Love the way the colors change, very Noro-like!

  4. I LOVE your socks! The yarn came out wonderfully, and the fraternal twin nature of the socks is lovely. I've got to make me some handspun socks!

  5. These are tremendous--nice work!!
