I haven’t done much spinning since the stay-at-home orders came down.Which is really rather silly, because it would be very soothing… But I did spin up the three green rolags I made on my blending board back in February. I plan to spin up a little undyed wool to ply with it. It won’t make very much yarn, but enough to do a little accent stripe on something, or combine with other yarns in a scrap shawl or scarf.
I finally finished my Rose Marl socks! The pattern is the vanilla 8-stitches-per-inch sock recipe from Anne Budd’s Getting Started Knitting Socks, modified for knitting on two circular needles (size 1.5). I went with a 3-1 rib for the leg and the top of the foot. It’s easy, mindless, and doesn’t require a separate cuff. The yarn is Paton’s Kroy sock yarn in Rose Marl: hence the name of the socks.
