I must have missed the memo while I was away. Were I an organized blogger, I would have posted this post this morning. Given that it's evening, QED. Apparently TdF spinners were supposed to state goals and post pix of their first day's work.
My goal for the duration is to turn this excellent Yarnaboard! prize from Lisa, Crown Mountain Farms Sock Hop roving, colorway Blue Suede Shoes...
... into sock yarn sufficient for one pair of socks. Here's today's progress.
Sock Hop is lovely to spin – it flows smoothly onto the spindle almost without pre-drafting. There's 8 oz (227 g) of it, putatively enough for several pair, so I'll stop around 400 yds (365 m) plied. Allez!
