Day 5 - Sock yarn, finished
, a photo by
This pretty skein is spun from Textiles A Mano fiber in a Merino/silk/bamboo blend that is just wonderful to spin.
It is also available this weekend at Sock Summit in perfect-for-sock-spinning packages of 3-1.5 ounce batts! That's a whole 4.5 ounces of spinning pleasure.
And once you have sock yarn, you need to have socks.
Cover your feet in these great slip-stitch socks, knit from the toe-up to make the most of your handspun yarn. Of course they'd look fantastic in variegated yarn, too.
The Slip Shod pattern is now available for sale on Ravelry. You know you want a pair of your own! ;)
