Nightshade Sock Yarn
This is one of my main accomplishments of the trip.....spinning up some sock yarn for Bruce's next pair of socks. Unlike many people who spun this Spunky Club fiber, I opted to ply in the traditional fashion for a tweedy look, appropriate for a manly man. These are beautiful colors and should knit up with some subtle striping. The yarn is my first three ply.....a lot of spinning, but it was worth it. 16wpi. Coopworth wool. Spun on Bosworth mini .7 oz. Plied on the Barebones.
