I finished this sock this morning:
It is an older pattern from Knitty, "Red Herring" by Cookie A. The main color is a Finn that was spun several months ago, waiting in my stash for the right project. The contrasting color is my latest spin, shown on the bobbins in the previous post.
It spun up into this nice 3-ply fingering wt yarn. This was the first fine yarn that I spun with the assistance of the Woolee Winder. I think I will be able to spin thin yarns with no problems. That is one of the things that people sometimes say - that it is not easily done with the WW. I am convinced we will be life-long buddies and partners in this spinning adventure......
This was the original roving. It was just over 3oz. My yardage was 252 yards, which was a little disappointing, but I purposefully put a great deal of twist into the singles and plying, as I knew it would eventually become socks. It made for nice color accent, although the difference was not great in certain areas. I like the subtle color changes. These socks have the afterthought Turkish heel. I had not knit one of those in many years, but enjoyed the process and I am happy with the outcome.
Now - off to cast on the 2nd sock!
