My handspun socks are done! I love them. The color feels Spring-like to me.
The striping even almost matched up. The difference comes from a bit of inconsistency in my spinning. The sock on my left foot in the picture (top) was spun first and is a fairly even sock weight throughout. Apparently I was getting impatient with the second batch. The yarn for the second is a bit thicker throughout.
I should get working on dyeing the 2lbs of roving I ordered from Custom Woolen Mills. I'm open to color suggestions. Anyone?
I tend to get stuck in the same color choices time after time. I would love some suggestions. I started spending time flipping through Kuler for color palettes (have you seen Kuler? if not, go now. I'll wait.), but even there I tend to be drawn to the blue/green/grey/brown color combinations. I'm in a rut.
I'm off to Saskatchewan to see my Mom for Easter. Have a great (hopefully Spring-like*) weekend!
