Today I pulled out the handpainted braid of Falkland wool. Gorgeous!! I examined the braid, pulled it into one long rope, then laid it out to look at the color repeats:
After a few minutes of deliberation, I decided I wanted this wool to become a pair of socks. I split the whole top lengthwise down the middle to divide it in half and began spinning from the green end with my spindle:
My plan is to spin each half on the spindle and wind off, then n-ply each of the two cops into the final two skeins of yarn. This will even give me the opportunity to try knitting up a pair of socks at the same time, rather than knitting one sock, then the other.
