Sock Yarn

My travel wheel is set up in the second studio, and has had yarn in progress for a while, since I'm not there all the time.  The wool is from Yarnwench, and is called cupcakes 2, which is a wonderfully soft merino wool.

During my last visit to the studio, I was able to finish plying the singles into a 2-ply yarn, and bring it home to finish.  After it was washed and dried, it looks to be about sock yarn weight.  The wool weighed over 4 oz., so it should be enough for a pair of socks, hat or scarf.  When I wind it into a ball, I'll run it through the yardage counter and find out exactly how much I have.  Right now, I'm thinking it will be a scarf or shawlette, but haven't decided on a specific pattern yet.

Just beautiful! I am ready to spin some color again-been spinning natural fleeces for a while again and am ready for some color and the surprise of plying it all up. Very nice yarn you have spun!


The yarn looks very sweet like a spring morning, should make a great scarf/shawlette.
