Long time no see

Here are some of the things I have been up to lately.

Firstly I was given a wonderful book for my birthday last year.IMG_0331.JPG

It is a really good source of information. I have now got her video and Sarah Anderson is certainly now one of my spinning idols. She has experimented with spinning yarn for socks, then wearing said socks to see which one gets a hole first. I call that real dedication. Anyway, one that did well was a three ply yarn with two plies going Z and one going S. Then plied S.

Here are my results.

P1030411   Legs knitted in normal three ply  

The sock is being knitted in said three ply and the hank is 

a normal three ply which was used for the leg.

The next pair are going to be made from cabled yarn which will have six plies, so a fair bit of spinning to do.

Signing off now but there will be more
