I Have Sock Yarn!

My first ever 3-ply, I now have 2x25g skeins (struck problems in the middle of plying).
I am quite happy with it, the thickness and twist are fairly uniform and it has come out at 22 wraps to the inch. Now to spin the other 50g!

Here's some:

Gorgeous! What type of wheel do you have? I like the look of it in the picture. :-)

It's called a 'Wee Peggy' I think they are still around. My mum bought it for my 21st birthday. It's very old but has a lot of character and still runs quite well.

Your yarn is so perfect! I can but dream, but maybe one day!

That's so impressive - what colour are you planning on dyeing the skeins?

I can't decide :-/ I can't even decide whether to do stripes or variegated. I'd like stripes but the thought of managing 3-4 metre skeins is a bit daunting.
