When I got back from spending time with family for the holiday, I immediately sat down at the wheel with the goal of cranking out one last skein of sock yarn to finish my 12 in 2012 goal.
I did some pretty serious stash diving in search of a relaxing, easy spin, and found this set called “Olympic Size Pool”. The green ball is superwash wool and the blue ball is superwash wool blended with silk nepps.
The fiber was from Feistywoman Designs and had been in the stash for almost 3 years now. It was high time it became yarn.
I spun them exactly as presented – even after being squashed in the stash for so long, it was still light and fluffy and I didn’t need to predraft.
I spun these with pretty high twist so that it would wear well as sock yarn. A basic 2-ply really blended the colors into a nice overall green. There was a little more left over of the blue, so I’ll throw that in as a few stripes when I make socks.
It was overall a very relaxing but quick spin, which is just what I needed for the holidays.
This last one completes my 12 in 2012 goal! Yay! Here’s all together:
Happy New Year, everyone!
