The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Day 5 and new sock yarn

Today I finished spinning the second bobbin of Suffolk and then took 2 plies of Suffolk and 1 ply of silk, into a 3-ply fingering weight sock yarn.  It skeined off into 247 yds so plenty for 1 sock, and the other bobbin will be plied tomorrow.  The silk catches the light, and shines wonderfully.

My Mom likes white socks, and wool socks so these will probably be her birthday present in August.
