Became this skein of chain-plied yarn.
handspun mohair/sheep

This sock ...

  • Lovely. I did know we shared color interests. You should get on Manise's mailing list. She sends me notification of great blues around the blogiverse.

  • Very nice chain plying! I need to learn to do that. The socks are great also -- is that a 4x2 rib? And the lovely Smooshy, an excellent job of enabling by... someone.
