Knit Sew Spin
here, and if, like me, you have a lot of sock yarns and sock yarn leftovers that you are longing to use, you should give this one a try. I might make another one someday. Spirit Wind Farm and Fiber Studio in the colorway "Sedona Sunrise", and the other, a gift to me, was from an unknown farm, but the alpaca's name was Scotty. Gifts are like that. When somebody offers me a bag of beige fluff, I don't delve too hard. Anyway, there wasn't much of either one, so in order to have enough yardage to make something out of it, I spun them on separate bobbins and then plied them together, which toned down the rainbow sherbet effect of one, and blinged up the boringness of the beige. They meet in the middle now, to make something kind of tonal and vaguely pinkish. I might have enough yarn for a pair of mittens, and I could line those with something that won't be prickly. Plans.
