I thought about posting my spinning from Tour de Fleece, but since there are just a couple days left and I haven’t posted any of it yet, it felt a bit odd. That’ll wait until next week.
Instead, today, for your fiber arts enjoyment, I present a pair of socks.
These socks I knit from my own handspun yarn, a true 3-ply, spun from Spunky Eclectic club fiber, Wensleydale, Kentucky Derby colorway. I spun the yarn in … 2010, I believe.
The Socks on a Plane pattern is simple and sweet, and it was a good fit for this yarn.
More notes: I modified it thus: CO 20, increased to 60 around. (This yarn is a tad thicker than normal fingering.) If I was making them again I’d probably move the cable panel a stitch or two (maybe just 1, in this yarn), farther in from the side of the sock.
I had 11 grams of yarn left over when I finished (so, not much). More details on my Ravelry project page.
I like how the cable panel runs all the way to the top of the sock, through but not disrupting the ribbing.
My only complaint isn’t really about the yarn or the pattern: I’ve got to figure out the best way to accommodate my high arches in toe-up socks.
So, what have you been making lately? See what others are up to in the fiber arts world at Fiber Arts Friday.
